Thai Curry Mussels
Those of you who know me, capsule know that I have a rambunctious puppy named Mussels. Why Mussels? Well, advice we wanted to name her something food-related and she was the runt of the litter. We thought Mussels would be funny. Little did we know, diagnosis Mussels is the perfect name for a 10-pound terrier who thinks she’s a 90-pound Pit Bull. She sure is cute though!
Another reason for the name: we love mussels. You know, the bivalves. They’re briny and tender and are usually accompanied by a slurp-worthy bowl of broth. And this broth was definitely worth slurping. Coconut milk and curry paste, cilantro and lime. It was even better than the chorizo-infused broth I usually make. You know it’s good if I prefer it to chorizo.
If you’re not into mussels, this broth would also be a very delicious way to poach shrimp, or eat with noodles, or drink from a cup…
