Recipe: Mussels from Sagres harbour opened in coconut milk and chilli

This delicious recipe for Mussels from Sagres harbour – Portugal – opened in coconut milk and chilli was kindly donated to London Mums by Martinhal Family Hotel & Resorts


Ingredients for 4 people 

1kg fresh mussels 

0.5ml organic coconut milk 

2 units of chutes 

50grs fresh coriander 

1 fresh file 



Start by thoroughly rinsing the fresh mussel, then place the mussels and coconut milk in a covered pan and leave to boil for 4 minutes. 

As soon as the mussels are open (do not boil for too long so that you don’t lose all the water) place in a dish and sprinkle with coriander and sliced fresh chilli on top. You can add lime zest at your taste. 

Make sure that all the ingredients you use are fresh and of local provenance. 

Here’s my son Diego on a Portuguese beach a few years ago.
