I know I have been eating seafood a lot lately and it is really bad for me but the younger ones can still enjoy all these and I just have to cook these sinfully rich deliciousness for Jo who will be going away and I know she will miss home cooked food for sure. I posted this up for her incase she has a craving when she is away from home, she can come here for virtual feeding lol! Mussels , shrimps and crabs are her favourites so being the dotting momsie, I cooked her favourite dish....Mussels & Shrimps In Thai Chili Sauce ..... aromatic and flavorful. My blog is her recipe book :))
Thai Chili Sauce, as a dipping , can be a bit overly sweet so I normally use it as one of the ingredients for cooking dishes that needs savory for this dish. With garlic and a bit of fermented black beans, this dish turned out so delicious that Jo wished she could have the whole dish to herself ..ahemm the Momsie loves it too but once again becoz it is artery clogging for me, I took a few only. :p This truly whets one's appetite and we have second helpings...the gravy infused into the mussels....whoa I can have two helpings of hot steamed rice !
I hope this photo won't make you salivate all over your keyboard * wink
