    About this recipe: Shying away from the typical tomato or wine based steamed mussel recipe? This one features tequila and lime and it as easy as 1..2..3 to prepare! Serve straightaway with some crusty bread to soak up the juice.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 teaspoon oil
    • 1/2 red pepper, diced
    • 1/2 small onion, diced
    • 125ml tequila
    • 60ml water
    • 1 lime, juiced
    • freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 2 tablespoons diced jalapenos (optional)
    • 1kg fresh mussels, scrubbed and debearded
    • 25g chopped fresh coriander

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Cook red pepper and onion in oil, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.
    2. Stir in tequila, water, lime juice, black pepper and jalapenos. Bring to the boil, and dump in the mussels. Sprinkle the coriander over the mussels, and cover with a tight fitting lid. Allow to steam for 3 to 4 minutes, or until all mussels have opened (discard any that don't).
