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.

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.
