Grilled Mussels with Curry Butter

Recipe by  

"Mussels are topped with a rich curry butter, sealed in foil packets, and grilled until done in this terrific recipe. They're so delicious! I serve these as an appetizer with warm, crusty bread for dunking followed by a big green salad topped with grilled chicken or shrimp for an easy summertime meal."

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high medium-heat and lightly oil grate.
  2. Whisk together the butter, garlic, curry powder, cumin, and salt in a small bowl.
  3. Arrange four large sheets of aluminum foil on a flat surface. Divide the mussels into four even portions and place one portion on each piece of foil. Dot the mussels with the curry mixture. Sprinkle the red bell pepper and parsley over the top of each portion. Top each with lime slices. Wrap foil tightly around the portions.
  4. Cook the packets on the preheated grill until the mussels have opened, 5 to 10 minutes. Discard any mussels which do not open.
  5. Transfer the mussels to small bowls and garnish each with a lime wedge to serve.

Highly recommended! I have made this several times now over a charcoal grill and it is fantastic. I have also had to share the recipe with my neighbor after he smelled it while it was cooking! I will add that you should soak the mussels before you cook them in order to get the sand out of them: Place the mussels in a large pot (8qt or so), and for every 24 mussels add 4 cups of cold water and 1/3 cup salt. Stir well once to mix the salt, mussels, and water. After soaking for about 15 or 20 minutes dump the water, rinse the mussels and repeat. Complete the process a total of 3 times. *** We just made this again tonight (the windchill here in MN was -14, but we really wanted to grill.) We added a bag of bay scallops on top of the mussels and then topped off each individual bowl (when it was finished) with a squeeze of lime, and a sprinkle of garlic salt and curry powder -- WOW! This was amazing! We served it with a baked potato & a salad. Thank you so much for this recipe!

Definitely worth the 5 stars with the presentation value, the meal looked fantastic. However be careful of adding too many post-cooking spices, as the dish needs to stand on the foundation of the cooking juices and not be overpowered by extra garlic salt/curry. As a complimentary side definitely add a very crusty bread, as the sauce is perfect in combination with an italian or sourdough loaf.

I can tell THIS would be my favorite recipe for mussels ever. I wanted to review for one reason: I am a stove-top mussel cooker, and every recipe I see, I make on the stove. If you also would rather make this on the stove top, do NOT add the lime slices. Instead, squeeze some lime juice on right before serving. The boiled lime actually REALLY overpowered everything and gave a bitter aftertaste...I found out the hard way haha!

Awesome. I made these exactly as written and they turned out perfectly. Thanks!

We enjoyed this; on the other hand, I've never met a grilled mussel that I didn't like. The next time we make it, we'll probably double all the tasty savoury stuff, because that's what we tend to like.

If you are looking for the perfect mussel recipe, this is the one to try!! This is the first recipe I have made with mussels, and everyone loved them. It is such a simple recipe and grilling them in tin foil packetts on the BBQ works perfectly and is makes for an easy clean.

I really loved this recipe. I usually will not rate a recipe if I change a major ingredient but in this case I think that it is okay. I used clams instead of mussels but considering that I prefer mussels, I can't wait to try it with them. Other than this change I followed the recipe exactly. The broth was wonderful with my homemade bread and I could eat another bowl right now. Thanks for the recipe.
