Whole Food Wednesdays – Thai Coconut Curry Mussels

Welcome to Whole Food Wednesdays! You’re invited to come and share your real food recipes using the Linky below. We’re excited to see what yummy things you’ve been creating and what great informational posts and videos you’ve got for us!

Ever get random cravings out of no where and you just have to eat that random food item?

It’s 10 am and I’m craving Thai Coconut Curry Mussels.

What?

Don’t worry, I waited until 1 pm to have them so it wouldn’t be quite so weird. And boy were they Yummy.

Here’s the recipe.

Thai Coconut Curry Mussels

  • 1 lb mussels
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 lemon grass stalk, cut in half lengthwise
  • 4 kaffir lime leaves finely sliced
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha chili sauce
  • salt to taste

In a large sauce pan with a lid, add all the ingredients except the mussels. Crush the lemon grass stalk using the back of a spoon. Cover and bring the coconut mixture to a simmer and allow the flavors to develop for approximately 10 minutes. Meanwhile, clean and scrub the mussels and remove any beards. Remove any mussels with an open shell. Add the mussels to the pot. Cover and allow to steam. The mussels are cooked when the shells open. Discard any unopened shells. Serve in a large bowl with some of the coconut stock.

 

The Rules:

  • 1. Follow Beyond The Peel on Facebook,  Twitter, and Pinterest.  It’s very easy to do and there are also buttons at the bottom of this page to do so.
  • 2. Introduce yourself, your blog, and what you’re about in the comment section and a small blurb about what you’re sharing. This way people can get to know you a little bit right off the hop and hopefully follow you as well.
  • 3. Be sure to add a link in your post back to this post. Simple linky etiquette. This allows your readers to find other posts that may help them on their journey.
  • 4. If you’re sharing recipes, the only requirement is that the ingredient list be comprised of real food only, that means non-processed food items. That being said, we are all in different places on our real food journey, some more advanced than others. I invite all of you to share, no matter where you are on your journey, but I ask you to stay mindful when sharing your recipes that this is a whole (real) food blog. This means, no ingredient lists that include edible oil products (velveeta, frozen whip topping), unfermented tofu, protein powders, ketchup, white flour or white and brown sugar.
  • 5. Less of a rule but more a suggestion: Retweet,  Stumble, or Pin this post so EVERYONE gets more exposure and traffic. It’s win-win for everyone.
  • 6. Don’t have a blog? That’s ok, we’d still love to hear from you. Write your recipes or tips in the comment section so we can get to know you too!
  • 7. Please visit some of the links below. After all, that’s how we’ll get to know each other!

 

Now it’s your turn to share your whole food recipes and ideas!

I’m sharing this with These Chicks Cook, Cast Party Wednesday, Allergy Free Wednesday, The Tasty Alternative, Whole New Mom, Real Food WednesdayPennywise Platter Thursday Simply Lives Thursday, Full Plate Thursday, Food Friday, Friday Food Flicks, Freaky Friday, Foodie Friday.

    I am a huge fan of Thai cuisine! I’ve linked up Enoki Mushrooms with Carrots and Ginger, a Japanese dish prepared in the Kansha way.

    Hey, France!

    Today I shared a post about edible flowers including how to use them as natural pest control and a post with some delicious healthier cupcakes free of refined sugars .

    Hope you’re having a good day :)

    Francs, WOW! This looks like a piece of art work, I didn’t think I liked mussels but not you’ve got me enticed, it sounds so goof!

    Good morning, France! I’m linking up my Creamy Cantaloupe Smoothie which is made with only three whole foods. I had no idea that you could drink an entire cantaloupe and had to share!

    I’m not a huge fan of mussels but these sound delicious! Love the coconut milk and Thai seasoning. Linked up again this week! Thanks for hosting!

    These look wonderful. I love mussels and I love Thai food, so, as far as I’m concerned you have a real winner here. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  13. Joanne April 5, 2012 at 12:34 pm #

    I have to admit, I haven’t really dived into the world of mussels much but with thai coconut flavors…I have no doubt I’d love these!

  14. Kelly @ Inspired Edibles April 5, 2012 at 1:26 pm #

    Oh…, what a great idea! I love Thai inspired seasonings but have not applied them to mussels… the preparation seems very straight forward too… maybe I’ll treat the family this weekend – love it France!

  15. Koko April 5, 2012 at 3:18 pm #

    I looove Thai flavours. Dishes like this bring me right back to Asia…sitting at a beachside restaurant eating a seafood green curry- mmmmm!

  16. Dr Lisa @ Naked Moxie April 5, 2012 at 6:03 pm #

    I think I am in heaven with your Thai Mussel recipe. Two of my favorites TOGETHER! Can’t wait to make this. Thanks so much. Oh, and I posted a fun recipe, Cauliflower Pizza! Amazing.. the crust is cauliflower and top it with veggies!!!! xo

    I love mussels and lack recipes for them. Please share this on my foodie friday linky today.

    • beyondthepeel April 7, 2012 at 8:15 pm #

      Mussels are one of my favorite meals. I’m the only one in my house that likes them so I don’t make them very often. It’s something I typically order when I eat out. That day I made them just for me as a treat. I hope you’ll try it out. The coconut milk eats like a soup…tooo yummy.

  18. Miz Helen April 7, 2012 at 12:25 pm #

    What a wonderful recipe just packed with flavor.   Hope you have a fabulous Celebration Week End and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
