According to Simply Seafood, meat from 20 mussels contains 292 calories. And a six-ounce portion meets your daily requirements for selenium and manganese. Manganese helps your body synthesize sex hormones and regulate blood sugar levels, while selenium helps maintain healthy immune functions.

Ingredients

Directions

1. Rinse and debeard mussels (pull any “beards,” the strings poking out, toward the hinge and discard). Discard any mussels that are open.
2. In a large pot, add coconut milk, lime juice, wine, curry paste, sugar, garlic, ginger, shallots, chile, smashed lemongrass, fish sauce, pepper and Thai basil.
3. Bring to a boil then simmer for 5 minutes.
4. Add mussels and cook 5 minutes. If there are any unopened stragglers, cook 3 more minutes. After that, toss any that haven’t opened. Portion in large bowls with a ladleful of the broth and garnish with spring onions and cilantro. Serve with thinly sliced bread or croutons if desired.
