Bill Granger recipe: Thai mussel soup
Sunday 19 January 2014
One of those light meals that manages to be both satisfying and cleansing.
250ml coconut milk
500g fish or chicken stock
3cm piece ginger, peeled and sliced
2 lemongrass stalks, bruised
4 kaffir lime leaves or 3 strips lime peel
Handful green beans, trimmed
500g mussels, beards removed and washed
1 head bok choi, leaves separated
Juice 1 lime
3 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp caster sugar
Handful coriander leaves
Put the coconut milk, stock, 750ml water, ginger, lemongrass and lime leaves in a large wok or saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer gently for 5 minutes.
Increase the heat and add the green beans and, after 30 seconds, the mussels and bok choi.
Cook for 3 minutes, or until the mussels open. Add the lime juice, fish sauce, sugar and coriander and serve.
