Very spicy! Over time these start to burn your mouth and fingers, but terrific flavor for people who don't mind lots of heat. I had to use coriander leaf since I didn't have the root. My mussels were fresh and were done in less than 10 minutes. Fun to eat but messy so don't try this on a first date!
Lovely, spicy mussels, if just a tad too hot for my personal liking (I like heat, but this knocked my socks off!). I made a 1/2 recipe using a package of frozen green-lipped New Zealand mussels. I just plunked them into the sauce after I'd let it reduce a bit. Thanks.
