Grilled Mussels with Curry Butter Recipe
Mussels are topped with a rich curry butter, sealed in foil packets, and grilled until done in this terrific recipe. They're so delicious! I serve these as an appetizer with warm, crusty bread for dunking followed by a big green salad topped with grilled chicken or shrimp for an easy summertime meal.
If you are looking for the perfect mussel recipe, this is the one to try!! This is the first recipe I have made with mussels, and everyone loved them. It is such a simple recipe and grilling them in tin foil packetts on the BBQ works perfectly and is makes for an easy clean.
Definitely worth the 5 stars with the presentation value, the meal looked fantastic. However be careful of adding too many post-cooking spices, as the dish needs to stand on the foundation of the cooking juices and not be overpowered by extra garlic salt/curry. As a complimentary side definitely add a very crusty bread, as the sauce is perfect in combination with an italian or sourdough loaf.
These were absolutely delicious. I loved that these could be made on the grill, 98 degrees outside as I write this. Curry & mussel lovers will be in heaven. I prepared exactly as written. Only thing, I did not care for the added lime slices. Great idea, and pretty presentation, but the rind adds a bitterness that took away from the overall enjoyment of this dish. Next time I will addd lime juice and leave out the wedges during cooking. But great overall, and a definite do-over. Thanks for sharing, Diana.
Everything turned out absolutely delicious. The flavor was spot on. I will definitely be using this recipe again. There wasn't a mussel left in sight.
I've eaten and cooked mussls many different ways, however, this recipe is the absolute best! I followed the recipe exactly.
Amazing, i didn't have any cumin so instead i added a little hungarian paprika and red pepper flakes, a must try for any mussel/eastern food lover!
To us, It seemed to have a bit of lackluster. If I was a chef perhaps I would know how to alter for better flavor.
So easy and delicious. We've made a few times and will definitely make again! Excellent!
