How to make Mussels In Asian Style Recipe

  1. To begin making the Mussels In Asian Style, wash mussels well in cold water for 3 to 4 times. Discard any beards if present.

  2. Mine are already slightly opened, because I had bought them the previous day and had chilled them in the freezer, but if your mussels aren't opened, don't worry.

  3. While cooking they will open up. Heat oil in a saucepan and once the oil is heated, saute minced ginger, garlic on medium heat for few seconds.

  4. Add 2 tablespoons of red chili paste, onion powder and saute for few more seconds. Add water and mussels.

  5. Mix well. Cover and cook on medium high heat for about 10 minutes.

  6. After 10 minutes, the mussels will open up. Discard any unopened ones.

  7. Keep stirring in between. Add garlic powder, 1 tablespoon red chili paste, vinegar, mint and coriander leaves.

  8. Mix, cover and simmer for another 5 minutes on medium heat. Remove cover and add turmeric powder. This helps to eliminate shell fish smell.

  9. You can totally skip this step if you don't want, but I add turmeric in most of my fish recipes to hide the strong smell of fish. Mix well and remove from heat. Enjoy these yum and easy Asian mussels.

  10. Serve Mussels In Asian Style as a side dish along with Hoisin Tofu & Mushroom Stir Fry and Mushroom Fried Rice for your weekend meal.
