Even though mussels are not a favorite in our house the recipe looked
so delicious that I could not pass it up. So I substituted shrimp instead.
I prepared only half the recipe and used a pound of shrimp.
Unfortunately, cutting the recipe in half resulted in a small amount
of sauce. I did not strain it but instead left all the wonderful flavors
in there before adding the cream , and it was delicious.
I served it with cooked rice but the next time I will prepare
the full recipe to ensure it is not too dry for the rice.
That said, it was a fantastic dish and will definitely be repeated.
My guys are big fans of mussels -while I can't manage to get one down.
More for them and since there are few things I don't eat, I see no reason
to push the point :) But using curry to flavor them was a new one for us.
My taste testers reported that from the aroma they thought the curry
flavor would be very strong, but luckily it was not. It was definitely there,
but not at all overpowering. And they really liked the cream sauce that
was added at the end. I look forward to circling back on this one with
shrimp next time so I can enjoy it too !
