Sake Steamed Mussels

Share

I'm obsessed with mussels and have been for years. Back before we had kids and traveling was still something my husband and I actually did, I would drag him to restaurants all across the globe to eat mussels prepared in the local fashion. Closer to home, two of my favorite local mussel spots have sadly closed and so I've started making them at home.

For a mom that adores mussels so much, why I never made them for my kids before is beyond me. It's probably for the same reason a lot of parents don't make or order them for kids. They just seem like an odd food -- possibly even too gourmet -- and it's hard to imagine kids enjoying them. My mother, for one, has told me she never would have dreamed of offering them to me when I was little. Yet on the other hand, when I go to my friend Jackie's house, her three young kids can't get enough of her homemade mussels.

Mussels are sold at our local farmers market, so last summer when one of my frequent cravings arose I bought a big bag and decided to try making them for the kids. I expected the worst and that's exactly what I got at first. Kenya started in immediately with cries of, "eww gross". Chloe followed her brother's lead but after watching hubby and I enjoying one after the other couldn't resist having a go. Minutes later we were all sitting outside like a bunch of shellfish savages, hunched over a big bowl devouring mussels.

Recently I got Steamy Kitchen's Healthy Asian Favorites cookbook and I ripped it open and immediately began drooling over the recipes and images. I've been a fan of Jaden Hair and her Steamy Kitchen website for years. I not only consider her a friend, but a true inspiration. We try to eat as healthily as possible and my kids are taken with Asian flavors so it seemed like it was written just for us.

The second I saw the picture for Jaden's mussels recipe I knew it was the first one I was going to try. I picked up a pound (which Kenya later told me wasn't enough) and in less then 5 minutes I had prepared a huge bowl full of mussels that the kids ate so fast I barely got my hands on any. I've made three more recipes since then and they've all been a huge hit too.

I want you to have the opportunity to dig into Jaden's new book, so I'm giving away two copies. Simply leave me a comment below and you're entered to win!

    this would be so so cool to win, especially since my family and I love asian food, all there is though are the chinese takeout and restaurants that we can get that cuisine at, and even my college was handing out chinese takeout the other day and I am so sick of all the greasy fried options.

    First we found your site looking for baby food recipes, Great information. But on the subject of mussels and kids, never thought of it until my 9 yo tried clams in garlic sauce at a buffet style restaurant, and loved them… I have been reading about making food for the baby with the spices you use and when age appropriate interduce the foods we eat as a puree, just watch on chili heat, and salt. We are always looking at new foods and would love to check out the recipes in this book.

    I love mussels, and have made them at home several times. I like the Asian spin on this recipe. The best part of mussels for me is usually some crusty bread to soak up the yummy broth! Oh, and one thing you may want to mention, since so many readers are commenting that they’ve never cooked them before but will try this recipe, is to definitely not eat any that don’t open on their own when they are steamed. If the shell is still tightly closed, throw them out!

    Ever had the “Angry Mussels” at JCT Kitchen in Atlanta? Mussels, bacon, serrano chilis, and onion… OH MY! YUM! I think they were on one of the “Best Thing I ever Ate” on Food Network.

    I too am a great fan of mussels
    Favorite is with just white wine and garlic Lots of garlic
