I made this for dinner when I was in Texas visiting the boyfriend. It’s hard cooking in someone else’s kitchen because you’re not use to how things are set up and also because my guy is a bachelor — which translates to him having like almost nothing for me to use with spices, herbs, cookware, etc.
Anyway, you can use a skillet if you don’t have a wok, which is what I used. I cut, sliced, and chopped up some ginger, green onions, red and green chili peppers, basil, chives, and garlic.
Heat the skillet/wok with cooking oil, sauté the ginger and garlic, add your cleaned mussels, stir-fry for a few minutes, cover with a lid to steam for a few more minutes (when the mussels open up that’s how you know they’re cooked), add soy sauce and Hoisin sauce (or oyster sauce), and add the rest of the herbs in with the mussels; give it a good toss around to mix everything up.
I also made miso soup to go with this, as well as arroz con pollo. I have a recipe for that in an earlier post.
