Fantastic recipe...... We do them every summer.. friends even volunteer to clean mussels so they can get them..
YUM! YUM! YUM! these mussels were sooo delicious! the sauce is perfect with them; I used fish sauce and used splenda instead of the sugar, about half of the amount called for; the BBQ is not working so I did them in the oven at 450f degrees for about 6 minutes. Served them with a seeded bagette, sliced and toasted for dipping into the wonderful zippy sauce as an appetizer before lunch for a friend. i will definately be making them again, thanks for posting Tebo!!!
These are absolutely WONDERFUL!!! The dipping sauce is out of this world and you cannot stop eating them till they are gone. I HIGHLY reccomend this recipe and I have coupled it with Crab Cakes With Spicy Thai Sauce, Crab cakes with spicy Thai sauce and made a meal out of it with an asian salad. I've made this numerous tiems and it so easy and delicous THANS!!!
Let me set the scene for you.My buddy Bob has a barbacue for about five couples every July.He's in the fish business,so all the seafood we have is the freshest you can possibly get without catching it yourself.The menu was Spring salmon or Tyee to our U.S. neighbors,plus pacific oysters,(smaller ones)and Mussels,shrimp etc.He knows I love oysters and mussels,so about three hours before were supposed to be there he tells me I'm preparing them. I head straight to Recipe Zaar and I see this simple recipe.Even some of the people who don't really care for mussels couldn't stop eating them.We had plenty of mussels so I did the recipe three times.Thank you so much for this recipe.Iv'e never had better tasting mussels.PS.After they opened on the barbacue I put them in a pot,poured the sauce over them and mixed them up.I found that easier than drizzleing.
These were just wonderful, the only thing I changed in the recipe is I substituted the hot pepper flakes with 3 fresh chillies. The small ones which pack a good punch. And I added 3 tablespoon of cilantro, just cos I like the taste of it :). Good recipe!! Thank you Tebo
