This week I decided to do something different. When I was at my mom’s house, she was preparing a mussel dish that I’ve had before and really love – and I wanted to share this experience with you.
Here is a photo journey through my mom’s creation of our supper:
This recipe is from a cookbook my Mother picked up at Santiago’s in Victoria, BC. She has had nothing but good things to say about her experience at the restaurent; and we have had much success with the cookbook that they sell. If you are in the area, I would recommend popping by.
Chipotle Cream Mussels
Saute Onion,Sundried Tomato,some Chipotle Peppers (not the liquid yet), and Garlic.
Deglaze with vinegar, add the liquid from the chipotle and reduce it a bit.
It was really good served on rice, with a gluten free bread we picked up. Udi’s is my favourite brand, they’ve managed to make a line of exceptional gluten free breads, and other products.
Thank you Santiago’s for a great recipe, and the good time that I had with my Mother creating delicious food and a time well spent.
