Coconut Steamed Mussels
Look for Pacific green-lipped mussels in Asian markets or live Atlantic black mussels in major supermarkets.
What You'll Need
- Measuring spoons
- Measuring cups
- Cutting board
- Chef knife
- Large pot with lid
- Large spoon
Rinse mussels and shake well to drain. (Live ones should be closed tightly. Discard any that remain wide open.)
In a large pot, combine green onions, coconut milk, garlic, and salt. Bring to a boil.
Add mussels. If using mussels that are already open on the half-shell, arrange them in layers in the pot, spooning a little cooking broth into each shell.
Cover, and steam for about 10 minutes, until they are opened and cooked through.
Add lime juice and cilantro. Stir well, and serve immediately.
You can replace the coconut water with low-sodium chicken stock. Remember to omit salt.
