Equipment

  • Baking Tray

Ingredients

  • 1 kg Mussels with the shell
  • 1 cup mayonnaise store bought or homemade
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1 tsp Red Chili Flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper freshly cracked
  • 1 pinch Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 200 Celsius. Take your mussels and put them in boiling water for 2 minutes, just to open the shell (yes this also cooks them just enough). Strain and put into a bowl of cold water.
  • Clean your mussels by removing the mussel from the shell, ripping away the beard, any algae, and the foot (optional). Set the mussels in a bowl of lightly salted water.
  • Clean the shell by scraping off the adductor muscle (hard white bit) and then put half the shells on a foil lined baking tray.
  • Put the cleaned mussel meat back into the half shell.
  • Make the sauce by mixing together all the rest of the ingredients. Spoon the mixture over the half shelled mussels in a sort of dome form.
  • Put the tray into the top rack of your oven (or broiler if you have it) for 5 minutes. You want to blacken the mayonnaise mixture just slightly.
  • Remove and serve.

Notes

If you want you can add a tsp of fish sauce to the mayonnaise mixture and leave out the salt completely.
