Fragrant lemongrass, rich coconut milk and spicy Thai chilis are the key ingredients that form the basis for this broth; with tasty, plump mussels tossed in for an absolutely irresistible, culinary creation.
Last recipe we did ceviche in lime juice. This time we tried lemon. How do you like dem apples?
While living in Lima, Peru, Amanda & I fell in love with the country’s classic seafood dish, ceviche. This recipe comes from the world-famous Peruvian restaurateur and chef, Martin Morales, and his colorful cookbook: Andina.
This recipe comes from my favorite restaurant in Napa, Mustards Grill. It’s become a tradition to eat lunch at Mustards at least once with the family when out visiting over Christmas and this time I bought their cookbook as a present to myself after another great meal. Give them a visit the next time you’re in California wine country!
Making the stock for this dish was way more fun than I had expected (relaxing, too). I just tossed some of my favorite vegetables and herbs together in a pot and stepped away, letting the boiling water extract all the wonderful flavors as I prepared the other ingredients. It was a nice change of pace from flying around the kitchen trying to cook 10 things at once!
Being a big fan of Ben & Jerry’s Pistachio Pistachio ice cream, I recently thought: ‘Why not try this little, green nut on some seafood?’ Turned out to be a good idea and one I recommend you try next time you have pistachios in the pantry.
