When the mussels at the market look too good to pass up, this easy grilled recipe will get them on your table in no time.

Ingredients

1
baguette, cut in half horizontally
2
tablespoons butter, melted
4
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
can (14 oz) unsweetened coconut milk
3
tablespoons Thai red curry paste
1
tablespoon soy sauce
2
lb fresh mussels in shells, scrubbed, debearded
4
green onions, thinly sliced on the bias, whites and greens separated
1
lime, cut into 8 wedges
1/4
cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  • 2 Brush cut sides of baguette with melted butter; sprinkle with 2 cloves of the garlic.
  • 3 Place bread cut side down on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 1 to 2 minutes on uncut side until grill marks form. Turn; cook 2 to 3 minutes on cut side until grill marks form. Cut into slices on the bias. Set aside.
  • 4 In small bowl, mix coconut milk, curry paste and soy sauce. Discard any broken-shell or open mussels that do not close when tapped. Pull up all 4 sides of each sheet of foil. Divide mussels, green onion whites and remaining 2 cloves garlic evenly among sheets of foil; pull sides of foil up around mussels mixture to make a bowl. Pour coconut milk mixture evenly over each. Squeeze 1 wedge of lime over each. Wrap foil securely around mixture. Pierce top of foil once or twice with fork to vent steam.
  • 5 Place packs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 6 minutes. Rotate packs 1/2 turn; cook 5 to 7 minutes longer or until mussels open. Remove packs from grill. Carefully fold back foil; discard any unopened mussels. Sprinkle with cilantro and green onion greens; serve with remaining lime wedges and baguette.
Tips  

Look for PEI (Prince Edward Island) mussels, as they are consistently sweet and tender – and sometimes they are even sold debearded!

Serve with 2 cups cooked rice instead of baguette.
