Yeah, hi. Hello! Over here. I know that bowl up there looks so amazingly delicious that it’s hard to read the words around it. And it IS delicious, believe me! I’ve been holding on to the end of a cold mixed with seasonal allergies these past couple of weeks, and it’s slightly miserable but not miserable enough to justify a sick day, unfortunately. And so a recipe like these mussels with fennel Thai chili broth is just perfect!
Mussels are my jam, and I thought: wouldn’t an Asian-style mussel dish be just delightful? And voila! This fennel Thai chili broth is seriously killer. I paired salty delicious pancetta with thinly sliced fennel and shallots. Let ’em caramelize nice and good before throwing in the rest: Thai chili paste, ginger, fish sauce, lime juice, white wine and some stock. Meanwhile, in the oven I toasted up a whole head of garlic that I then used to make garlic toasts. Because if there is one thing that is better than a spicy hot broth, it’s something crunchy to dip in it, amiright?
Garlic toasts are one of the secret weapons in my kitchen arsenal. After I roast the garlic heads whole in the oven, I remove the skins (those suckers just pop right out, it’s so simple!) and mash it with olive oil and a bit of salt and pepper. Spreading this beautiful concoction on toasts before crisping them under the broiler is a simple way to elevate the bread you serve with any meal!
