Baby, it’s still cold outside. Warm up this spring with a steaming pot of Chatelaine‘s featured Oceanwise mussels, recipe below. Dreaming of daffodils doesn’t hurt either.


  • 2 kg fresh mussels
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • red onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • large tomatoes, chopped
  • 398 ml can light coconut milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Don’t forget the crusty bread when preparing for this sweet curry dish. The mouth-watering tomato-coconut curry sauce will have you wanting seconds…and thirds.


  • Rinse mussels. If any are open, firmly tap on the counter. If they do not close, discard. Heat a large pot over medium. When hot, add oil, then onion. Cook, stirring occasionally until onion softens, 3 min. Stir in curry powder and cook 1 min. Add tomatoes, coconut milk and salt. Increase heat and bring to a boil, stirring often.
  • Add mussels. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until they open, 7 to 9 min. Discard any mussels that don’t open, then stir in cilantro. Serve mussels in large deep bowls with crusty bread for dipping.
