Grilled Mussels with Curry Butter

Rated as 4.93 out of 5 Stars

"Mussels are topped with a rich curry butter, sealed in foil packets, and grilled until done in this terrific recipe. They're so delicious! I serve these as an appetizer with warm, crusty bread for dunking followed by a big green salad topped with grilled chicken or shrimp for an easy summertime meal."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high medium-heat and lightly oil grate.
  2. Whisk together the butter, garlic, curry powder, cumin, and salt in a small bowl.
  3. Arrange four large sheets of aluminum foil on a flat surface. Divide the mussels into four even portions and place one portion on each piece of foil. Dot the mussels with the curry mixture. Sprinkle the red bell pepper and parsley over the top of each portion. Top each with lime slices. Wrap foil tightly around the portions.
  4. Cook the packets on the preheated grill until the mussels have opened, 5 to 10 minutes. Discard any mussels which do not open.
  5. Transfer the mussels to small bowls and garnish each with a lime wedge to serve.

I can tell THIS would be my favorite recipe for mussels ever. I wanted to review for one reason: I am a stove-top mussel cooker, and every recipe I see, I make on the stove. If you also would ra...

Awesome. I made these exactly as written and they turned out perfectly. Thanks!

We enjoyed this; on the other hand, I've never met a grilled mussel that I didn't like. The next time we make it, we'll probably double all the tasty savoury stuff, because that's what we tend ...

I really loved this recipe. I usually will not rate a recipe if I change a major ingredient but in this case I think that it is okay. I used clams instead of mussels but considering that I pre...
