Album 'Blur The Best Of'
I fancied some mussels tonight so did a late night shop and bought the following:
Cooked mussels in butter (yes yes I know but I don't have the luxury to go fishing in Hackney...you don't know what I might find)
kaffir lime leaves
Thai jasmine rice
Cycling back home, all that was on my mind was what to do and how to do it. I want a quick dinner.
So as soon as I got in I boiled some water in pot and added about 50g jasmine rice and let that boil for one minute, stirred it and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile chopping time:
kaffir lime leaves...I actually crushed them.
fat garlic clove
fry in a pan with a drop of vegetable oil.
add some peas to the rice
tip in the mussels and simmer for 3 minutes. Put a lid on the pan and shake it around so all the juices start kissing the mussels.
turn off the heat for both pans, drain rice.
serve, it looks a lot but it actually it isn't!
THIS TOOK ME 25 MINUTES.
If you don't believe me I can come round and show you.
