Chilli and Garlic Mussels with Ramen Noodles

By Melikeyuk
I was given a gift of Sake over Christmas and wanted to put it to good use. I wanted to make a seafood dish that was packed with flavour while not costing the earth. This dish is ready in a matter of minutes, just the way I like it!

Chilli and Garlic Mussels with Ramen Noodles

2 tablespoons of sesame oil
Small bunch of fresh chopped coriander leaves
10-15 grilled cashew nuts
  • Add the ramen noodles to a bowl containing hot boiled water. Cover with plate and leave to one side.The noodles should be drained after 3-4 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pour the sesame oil into a medium sized frying pan.
  • Add the chilli and crushed garlic to the frying pan and cook until fragrant.
  • Add the mussels to the pan and stir around for approximately 30 seconds.
