Thai Style Ginger and Garlic Mussels Pinterest

Thai style ginger and garlic mussels, spicy shelled mussels stir fry recipe! For this recipe, I used frozen shelled mussels, cooked thawed mussel meat briefly and served in a delicious coconut milk sauce, super flavorful, quick and easy, perfect for weeknight dinners or even for entertaining!

I found these cooked shelled mussels in the freezer of my supermarket, so handy! They are just steamed and unflavored which makes them such a versatile product to cook!

I have used these shelled mussels in numerous recipes, to name a few in my Easy Fish and Seafood Stew and my Shrimp Rice Noodles Stir Fry.  

This time I cooked them Thai style with garlic, ginger and coconut milk, served them over jasmine rice, a delicious weekday meal or starter if you have guests.

These shelled mussels thaw very quickly, 30 to 45 minutes, you can rinse them with cold water to activate the thawing process, and since they’re already cooked you only need to re-heat them. You may cook them frozen but then they will release a lot of water, therefore you will need to cook them longer to evaporate all that water and I really don't like my seafood overcooked.

If you can only find mussels with their shells, this sauce would be delicious together too!

Thanks Gabby, glad that your husband loves mussels! This is such a quickly made recipe and full of flavors!

Seriously. Mussels are such a glorious treat for me. I love how you prepared them and would eat them all before I got to the rice. Maybe I would be too full to eat the rice too, but I'd give it my best!! Beautiful photo and delicious meal!

Lol Lainey, thank you so much! Once you taste it, I bet you'd make sure there's rice, sauce and mussel in each spoonful

This looks so tasty! I've never tried mussels over rice before, it's definitely on my to do list now!

I love mussels, but I've never tried frozen ones before. Our fish market is only 5 minutes from the house -- lucky us! This looks like a tasty recipe!

Thanks so much Lisa! You're so lucky to live close to a fish market! I guess these mussels were frozen because shelled, of course when given the choice, I'd rather go for fresh mussels

It's funny, my 10 year old likes mussels and other "difficult to eat" seafood better than I do! Crab legs, lobster tail, etc. I'm not sure I've ever seen mussels for sale without shells. Maybe I'd like them better that way

Thanks Jill, these shelled mussels were great for the quickest, no fuss meal and I was grateful for no stinking shells in my trashcan

Feeezed shelled mussels?? Why have I never seen them before?! I love that idea! The shells take up too much room in the pan anyway and I hate having to check if they’re ‘alive’! Great recipe!

Thanks Aleka, you gave me another reason for liking these shelled mussels: no need to check if they are alive ! Once thawed, these really had kept a "fresh" quality, great product, I hope you find a brand with equivalent quality!
