This gives a dub-it-up Caribbean twist to the French classic moules marinières. Fabulocious!


  • 2 kg (4 lb 8 oz) mussels
  • 400


  1. Prepare the mussels by scrubbing them under running water and pulling away the beard’ (the threads coming out of the side of the shell). Discard any that are cracked, or that are open and do not close when tapped on the side of the sink.
  2. Pour the coconut milk into a large casserole that has a lid, and add the red onions, spring onions, garlic, chilli, lime zest
