      This was soo easy and delicious! Made it as written and served it with crusty bread and a tomato salad. Might add a finely chopped chili pepper and some garlic next time, its a recipe to play with! Thanks Chia!!

      I could have eaten this whole batch of mussels all by myself, but unfortunately had to share with a friend. We both loved the spicy broth and the juicy tenderness of the mussels, wiping our bowls clean with some delicious French bread. I followed your instructions to the letter, which were so simple and easy to follow. I think that some chopped cilantro would be good with this instead of the basil, and I might try it next time. Good one, Chia.

      Great broth! I made it as written except substituted 1/2 tsp powdered ginger as I had no fresh stuff. We drank the remaining broth. Worth trying!
