3. Preparing Mussels in Curry Properly
It is best to put the sea creatures in cold water after shopping.
- Generally important: Buy the mussels very fresh and do not interrupt the cold chain.
- Washing: Wash the mussels thoroughly and change the water several times.
- Clean: Remove beards and other marine life then process further.
- Disposal: The mussels that do not close can be disposed of immediately.
The multiple washing is necessary because the sea creatures are often sandy. I would also like to answer the question of how to recognize broken shells.

4. What to Consider for Mussels with Curry?
The base of this preparation you can create with garlic or as described in the instructions below with soup vegetables.
The mussels taste better in combination with dry white wine or with Prosecco.
So that the curry comes out well, I still take cream or coconut milk and ginger to it.
Ginger is an optional ingredient as is cilantro.Exotic ingredients tip from chef Thomas Sixt
5. Which Curry is the right one for Mussels?
Let’s take a quick look at the curry question as well.
It’s easier than you think. Reach into the spice rack at the supermarket and buy a yellow curry.
This is the easiest way. Madras curry is pretty great, it tastes a little more fruity.
From the hot curry I would leave the fingers, we want to bring a balanced preparation on the plate.
Use madras curry for the mussels!Ingredients recommendation from chef Thomas Sixt
For the decoration and for the excellent taste there are two more info:
Curry sauces always need some sugar or honey or agave syrup.
The sugar balances the sharpness of the curry and makes the sauce smooth on the palate.
As a decoration, I recommend red pepper, which is sweetly spicy and pleases the eye.
6. Suitable Ideas for Side Dishes
As side dishes to this mussel dish with curry fit fresh baguette, lukewarm sushi rice, basmati rice,
boiled plantains, caramelized bananas, chickpea patties, rice noodles and flatbread.
A caramelized banana tastes excellent with curry with mussels. It can also be prepared in a pan!
