A favorite eatery from Auckland that I miss here in Hong Kong, is the Belgian Beer Cafe! In particular, its mussel pots!
And so, on a whim one weekend, I decided to make a mussel pot! Which was surprisingly easy!
Let’s introduce the dishes first..
#1: A tomato mozzarella salad!
#2: And.. Ta-da.. Mussels cooked in white wine in a … pot!
Well, the first dish then.. SO easy. First, get some tomatoes…
Followed by a block of mozzarella cheese.. Which I got here for.. HK$5! Yes, it was on clearance, but so cheap!!!
And now, for dish 2… The mussel pot!
First, some white wine.. Any old white wine will do, about 1 cup worth… More does no harm. And some tomatoes, onions, lightly grilled to add some flavour!
And then.. Mix it all up, start the fire, and boil to perfection!
A really really easy
dish pot that will surely impress! The soup was soooo seafoody-sweet!
