Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of mussels with a warm, luscious sauce? The mussels come together in no time, but don’t lack any flavor in this delicious recipe. That’s because as the mussels cook, they release their own liquid, which is packed with flavor from the ocean. Don’t forget the bread! You’ll want to soak up all of this curry sauce.



  1. Remove any hairy beards from the mussels. Discard any mussels that are open and don’t close after being tapped. Add the mussels to a medium bowl and cover with cold water; stir with your hand to remove any sand. Drain and set aside.
  2. Preheat the broiler. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and broil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Stir in the ginger, cilantro stems and the white parts of the bok choy. Cook until slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the curry paste and lime zest. Stir to coat the vegetables, about 2 minutes. Add the coconut milk, fish sauce, sugar and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a simmer and add the mussels. Cover and cook until the mussels open, 5 to 7 minutes (discard any unopened mussels). Uncover and reduce the heat to low. Add the green parts of the bok choy and half of the cilantro leaves. Toss to wilt slightly.
  4. Divide the mussels and sauce among shallow bowls and top with the remaining cilantro leaves. Serve with lime wedges and the toasted baguette slices.
