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 kgĀ fresh mussels
  • 1 tbspĀ vegetable oil
  • 1Ā red onion, sliced
  • 2 tbspĀ curry powder
  • 3Ā large tomatoes, chopped
  • 398 mlĀ can light coconut milk
  • 1 tspĀ salt
  • 1/2 cupĀ chopped cilantro

Donā€™t forget the crusty bread when preparing for this sweet curry dish. The mouth-watering tomato-coconut curry sauce will have you wanting secondsā€¦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 donā€™t open, then stir in cilantro. Serve mussels in large deep bowls with crusty bread for dipping.
