Tur off the heat.You can add some coconut cream or if you wish to keep it #lowcalories just add some black pepper.
Plating: sprinkle with a handful of chopped parsley leaves and red pepper flakes.
Enjoy this satiating meal with a glass of Beer. I chose this #pilsner as it has a medium-dry crisp with a floral bouquet and subtle bready and malty aromas sustained by a slight bitterness that pairs well with #mussels
Bon App’ xx .
