  • 200ml coconut cream

  • 100ml cream

  • Dill to garnish

  • 1tbsp olive oil

  • Coriander paste

  • ½ bunch coriander picked and washed

  • 1 chilli deseeded and sliced

  • 2 shallots sliced

  • 1 garlic clove sliced finely

  • 1 stalk lemongrass sliced (use only tender core)

  • 1 tsp fresh turmeric grated

  • ½ tsp coriander seeds dry roasted and crushed

  • 50g palm sugar grated

  • 2 kaffir lime leaves finely sliced

    Add mussels and stirring well for 30 seconds nonstop, it must fry, steam and make noise. Cover and cook for approximately 2 minutes. As soon as they begin to open strain them and reserve the liquid
