Wonderful, Chia!! I added some Japanese eggplant I had, and half a red onion that was hanging around. Left out the mussels because I can't eat them. Boy, was this GOOD! We had it for dinner on Friday, fought over the leftovers for lunch on Saturday! Can't wait to make this again! Thanks!

This recipe is so easy but a definite for a special dinner, lovely seafood and the basil is a lovely change from the usual coriander that would normally go with a Thai style recipe.
