Ingredients

Mussels weighed with Shells

1250 g

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Shallots

3 medium, finely chopped

Garlic

2 clove(s), finely sliced

Lemon Grass Stems

1 stem, finely chopped

Coriander, fresh

2 tablespoons, chopped

Chilli, Green or Red

Vegetable stock cube(s)

1 cube(s), vegetable, make up to 300ml (1/2 pint) with hot water

Instructions

  1. Discard any mussels that are damaged or that remain open when tapped. Rinse them well, scraping off the 'beards'.
  2. Spray a large saucepan with low fat cooking spray. Cook the shallots and garlic gently for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the lemon grass to the saucepan with the coriander, chilli and stock. Simmer for 10 minutes without a lid.
  4. Add the mussels to the saucepan and cover with the lid. Steam for 4-5 minutes, shaking the pan from time to time. Discard any mussels that fail to open.
  5. Share the mussels between four bowls, then serve with the liquid poured over.

Notes

Look out for lemon grass in the fresh herb section of your supermarket.
