From Food and Wine Magazine - These mussels make a great appetizer or add some crusty sourdough bread and a salad and make a meal. They are just a litte sweet and just the right amount of spicy! Use a good lager to increase the great flavors. Food and Wine says: "Tyler Florence likes making this one-pot dish for parties because it requires so little cleanup. He simply steams plump mussels in lager, then tosses them in a creamy, spicy, slightly tart sauce made with ginger, chiles, coconut milk and lime juice. The result is a Thai-inflected version of the French classic."
