Friday Saturday! I am a day late with my French Fridays with Dorie post. I sat down to work on it yesterday, but I must admit I got distracted by the Internet.
This week we made a wonderful dish that tastes way better than the effort put into it. Curried Mussels are the last of the three mussels recipes in Around My French Table for the group to complete. It is basically steamed mussels in a creamy curry sauce.
I am always surprised how quick and easy mussels are to cook. We began by building up a sauce of butter, onion, shallot, curry powder, red pepper flakes, wine, and some herbs. The mussels are added to the pot and quickly steamed. Once the mussels are done, the sauce is finished with a bit of cream. Heaven!
Good thing this recipe was quick and easy because I made it for myself for lunch one day. No way anyone else in my household was going to eat this. It felt special and decadent to make myself such a wonderful lunch on an otherwise mundane week day!
This was my favorite of the three mussels recipes. I even slurped up some of the sauce when the mussels were gone. I will have to remember this recipe next time I’m feeling the need to treat myself to a special lunch.
