As of right now, I see 3,040 "saves" and 61 reviews. If you've been thinking about making this, but have reservations about, perhaps, dealing with cleaning the mussels (like I did), just GO for it! I got 4(ish) pounds of mussels from the local grocery store, and did end up discarding quite a few of them that were open or cracked(maybe a third?) but scrubbed the closed ones with a toothbrush and pulled out the "beards", and we (*we* including a VERY hearty eater) had more than enough (including a good bit of crusty bread) for dinner. The sauce was perfect as written (ok, maybe a little extra red curry) and my aforementioned hearty eater used his soup spoon to finish the sauce/broth after his bread was used up. I do recommend watching the mussels as they're cooking, and as soon as they're all opened even just a little bit to remove from the heat. I think mine took maybe 3 minutes and were perfectly cooked. We love cilantro on anything/everything, and the amount in the recipe was great, but if you had any less or more, it would be quite all right. The balance of the other ingredients is absolutely perfect. This will go with/on chicken and rice next, and definitely mussels and/or clams again!
