Why are oceans so strong?….Must be the mussels
This week's recipe brought to you by Katie Wiley
This quick and spicy recipe is originally made with locally sourced Oregon coast mussels, but can be made with any fresh mussel or other seafood that is available in your area. Sautéed garlic is then mixed with peanut butter, yellow curry paste, red pepper flakes and salt. Add the mussels to the sauce, garnished with fresh herbs and served over jasmine rice and enjoy!
