DIRECTIONS

  • Clean the mussels and remove the "beard".
  • Heat a sauce pot on medium-high heat. Add vegetable oil and sauté the red onion, garlic, and all the ground spices for about a minute.
  • Add mussels, coconut milk, roma tomatoes, chipotle chiles, lemon, and lime juice to the pot. Some salt to taste only, because the mussels are salted.
  • Cover the pot with a lid and simmer the mussels until they have opened, but watching carefully to not over cook them. Decorate with fresh cilantro on top and serve.
  • For the additional Ingredients: add the white wine together with the mussels without chipotle, and add the celery on top of the mussels and cook until opened.
  • Important Note: rinse the wild mussels several times but do not let them sit in water, as freshwater will kill them.
