Steamed Mussels in Chinese Wine

Steamed Mussels in Chinese Wine Recipe

Mussels steamed in Chinese wine is a quick and easy dish to whip up at home. I bought 500 grams mussels at the supermarket for only S$1 during a quick sale. Normally they will cost about S$2+ which is still inexpensive.

The cooking method is really easy. Just stir fry some aromatics such as shallots and ginger in a wok, then add the cleaned mussels and Chinese wine to steam until the shells are opened. This is so easy, that I almost never order mussels or shell fish when I eat out, as eateries usually charge a premium for seafood. Try it out!

    Those are beautiful mussels with the blue tips! I’m always surprised at how inexpensive they are. This sounds delicious with ginger and garlic!

      oh but I think the ones sold in your area are the black shell types. I think they taste better and would have cost a lot more in Singapore. In fact I’ve been looking for some black shells mussels to cook :D

      I think there is an abundance of fresh seafood in Australia! Missed the fresh lobsters, prawns, fish and shell fish … it is seafood paradise ;)

      but I think there are plenty of fresh seafood and mussels in the outlying islands? My sister told me she had one of her best seafood meals at an island in HK, I’m so jealous :halo:
