Thai Mussels With Jasmine Rice

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by The Flying Chef

This is a yummy fragrant Thai dish that can be served by itself or with jasmine rice. If serving as is I would probably up the mussels to 3kg as mussels are very light and not all will open.

i love mussels. this was delicious made almost exactly as written, i subbed fresh basil for the coriander, and just made half of the recipe for 2 of us. i had some of your leftover asian duck so i chopped it into strips and made duck lo mein as a side dish. we had a very good asian themed dinner
