Coconut Lime Mussels

Mussels  are incredibly easy to cook and this recipe capitalizes on that fact. Using a handful of simple ingredients and a few straightforward cooking steps, you’ll have a light but really satisfying meal on the table in 30 minutes.
The mussels swim in a creamy coconut broth spiked with shallot, garlic, ginger and lime juice. It can be sipped like soup or soaked up by cauliflower rice . Although perfectly delicious as is, this recipe can be expanded in a variety of ways. Make it spicy by adding a sliced Thai chile or a drizzle of hot sauce; make it meaty by sautéing bacon or sausage with the shallot; make it green by adding a few handfuls of spinach leaves. However you serve it, you’ll love the flavor and the quick prep time.
