A Simple Mussel Dish: Kirikiriroa Hot and Sweet Mussel.

Salam to all,

How are you? What are your activities this weekend? Here in NZ, this is a long weekend since it's Easter Holiday (from Friday 2nd April-Monday 5th April). We aren't going anyway except for going for food supplies shopping and maybe visiting some friends. apala melalut ni sbb sebenarnya nak kongsi resipi mudah je hehe

This morning, we went out shopping at the Pak n Save (a supermarket), Prime Halal Meat (our favourite buther-there are other butcher outlets that sell halal meats as well) and Fruitworld (our favourite vegetable and fruit shop).

The unplanned dish for our lunch today was a simple muscle dish that I called "Kirikiriroa Hot and Sweet Mussel". All right, now let's see the ingredients:

From top left: Ginger (abt 1 inch), Garlics (3 cloves), Hot Chillies (put more if you like it very hot) and Onions (2)
The most important ingredient! : 1 kg of Mussel

2 tablespoons of Chilli Paste with Soya Bean Oil (or you can use chilli powder),A glass of water and
I forgot to take a photo of the salt and abt 3 tablespoons of cooking oil. So, don't forget those ingredients too! hehe

Now ladies and gentlemen, let's see the methods:

1.Heat 3 tablespoons of cooking oil.
2.Saute garlics, ginger, chillies and onions until they look brown.
3. 2 tablespoons of chilli paste or chilli powder.Cook until the mixture looks well blended.

4. Pour in the water.
5. Put all the mussels in the pan.

6. Get a pot lid to cover in order to steam it for about 20-25 minutes. Don't forget to check it from time to time. When all of the mussel shells are slightly opened, you know that the dish is ready.

7. Garnish the dish with coriander or spring onions. (It's optional)

What do you think of the dish? It's pretty easy and simple right? I really love to share some simple recipes as it makes my life easier. Plus this dish can be prepared in about 35-40 minutes (including the preparation). You can use other seafood like cockles, pipis,  or any seafood that comes in shells. teringat kat "Etok". balik Kelate mesti nok cari etok.  So, have fun cooking this!
