Second meatless Friday in a row. I feel so catholic.
With a little bit of training from last Friday I made mussels again today. This time with fresh french fries.
How is it possible that In-N-Out Burger can serve such excellent, fresh french fries for a buck and change, but 98% of all full service restaurants serve crappy frozen ones? Things like this baffle me to no end.
Anyway. To mix it up, I made more of a broth than a cream sauce today, which in Victoria's view made it an 8 out of 10 on her perfection scale....will she ever give me a straight ten?? Ever? Last week the bacon was not cut right. What will it be next week!
It's more of a Thai slant with coconut milk, a splash of fish sauce, fresh lime juice, garlic and a couple of spicy chilies. Flavored with almost no salt, just lots of Cilantro.
If you can get fresh mussels, this is a good recipe. The Lillet, I ended up not putting any in the broth, but I drank a couple of glasses. It starts to grow on me.
