Steamed Mussels in Coconut Milk

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, finely chopped 

  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
  • 1 cup (250 ml) light coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) honey
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) rice vinegar
  • 2 lbs (1 kg) mussels or other shellfish (clams, cockles ...), cleaned
  • Salt and pepper 




Preparation

  1. In a saucepan, soften the onion and garlic with the ginger in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the coconut milk, honey, and rice vinegar. Bring to a boil and add the mussels. Cover and continue cooking, stirring frequently until they open, about 5 minutes. Discard any closed mussels. Adjust the seasoning.
  2. Divide the mussels into two bowls. Drizzle with the cooking juices. 



Note

If you select several shellfish, know that cockles and clams should be added 5 minutes before the mussels as they require more cooking time.
