This is an extremely yummy treat. Really fast to make, and extremely tasty. The lemongrass gives it a wonderful flavour and fragrance. I found this in Donna Hay's Food Fast cookbook.


  1. Place stock, ginger, lemongrass and lemon rind in a saucepan over high heat.
  2. Bring the broth to the boil then add the mussels and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the mussels open.
  3. Discard any mussels that don't open.
  4. Serve mussels in deep bowls with the broth and some bread or with some cooked pasta.

Great treat is right - I did change the broth - I didn't have any fish broth so I used chicken broth - it worked! I will try this recipe with the fish broth next time. Main thing is we really enjoyed the mussels.
