VieveMS - Very nice and light - the combination of mint and lemon complimented the mussels well. I found I didn't need to cook the mussels for anywhere near 20 minutes, in fact I think it was closer to 11-12 minutes but then again I was only cooking about 1/3rd of the quantity.

Bumped: just bought some mussels.  I think I am going to make a coconut curry sauce tonight but might do this for lunch tomorrow.

Whipped this up for lunch today.  Very nice and light - the combination of mint and lemon complimented the mussels well.
