Seriously great. The foundation of this recipe is perfect. My market didn't have 5 pounds of mussels, so we had to make do with 2, but made the broth to full quantity anyway, and it was perfect amount for my husband and I as a main dish. Based on personal taste, and what I had in the larder, these were my minor changes, and they worked very, very well: We really like spice, so I doubled the amount of red paste. I also added about a tablespoon of chopped fresh mint, and a tablespoon of chopped fresh ginger (we had it; thought it might be good in there too -- and it was!) Plus, I made some sticky rice and served it on the side; after the mussels were eaten, we tossed the sticky rice into the broth base and it was amazing -- imagine a rice tom-kah. Great, great, great. We served this with homemade chicken potstickers. A delicious dinner. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!
