Ingredients

  • 2 lbs fresh mussels
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup diced peeled potato
  • 1 cup chopped leek (white and light green parts only)
  • 3/4 cups finely chopped onions
  • 3/4 cups finely chopped celery
  • 2 teaspoons mild Indian curry paste
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup thawed corn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander

Method

Scrub mussels and remove any beards. Discard any that do not close when tapped.

In Dutch oven, cover and steam mussels with water over medium-high heat, stirring once, until mussels open, about 8 minutes. Strain, reserving liquid and discarding any that do not open. Let cool. Remove mussels from shells; place in bowl. Set aside.

In Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat; cook potato, leeks, onion and celery, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in curry paste; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in flour and salt; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Whisk in milk; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and
potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.

Add reserved mussel liquid and corn; simmer until corn is tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Serve sprinkled with coriander.
