Sweet Steamed Mussels are easy to prepare and fast to cook. However, they taste amazing and served as a main dish with crusty bread its a pleasure to serve. These are called sweet as I include Rice Wine or Dry Sherry for a subtle twist.

  • Remove the mussels from the packaging and scrub clean.
  • Any mussels that remain open when tapped should be discarded.
  • Pour about 2in of water into the bottom of a steamer and bring to the boil over a high heat.
  • Place the mussels on a steamer rack and place into the steamer.
  • Reduce the heat to low so the water simmers and place the lid on the steamer.
  • Allow to steam for about 5 minutes until the mussels open.
  • While the mussels are cooking, combine the other ingredients except the peanut oil into a Pyrex bowl and mix well.
  • Hat a pan over a high heat and add the peanut oil. When the oil is very hot carefully pour the oil over the sauce ingredients and mix well again. Hence using Pyrex as its heat resistant.
  • When the mussels are cooked/open, remove from the steamer and pour into a warmed serving bowl. Any mussels that still haven’t opened should be thrown away.
  • Pour the mixed sauce over the mussels and serve.
  • I like to add a sprinkle of chopped cilantro/coriander or parsley.
