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!

    I wish I can get such cheap mussels here too! I rarely see fresh mussels sold at my local sad.

    Mussels are always the perfect photographer’s “model.” These green-lipped beauties just add to the allure. A fast and elegant meal, Wiffy. You sure you’re a noob? :-)
