LYL – Stir-Fried Mussels with Ginger and Scallions

Another Wednesday, another stir fry adventure! Mussels were a bit of detour off our usual path, but I’m interested to know how everyone did! Leave your comments below, or a link to your blog post about this week’s recipe.

Q&C – Stir Fried Mussels with Ginger and Scallions

I hope everyone has had a restful and relaxing holiday! I myself am still recovering from the gluttony, but I’m ready to get my wok fired up for next week’s recipe! I’ve never stir-fried shellfish before, so it should be an adventure! Before we get started we’ll have our usual questions and comments discussion, both here and in our Facebook group. Have at it in the comments with any thoughts or questions you might have, and we’ll try to get them all answered before next Wednesday!

PS. Fellow wokker Rob asked about using frozen mussels if fresh ones aren’t available, and the response from Grace was that she has never tried frozen ones. If anyone would like to try frozen mussels we’d love the feedback!

Recipe Nominations – November

Is it just me or is time flying by this fall!? Once again we have arrived at recipe nominations. By now you now the drill, but if you’ve recently joined us here is how it works. The first recipe of the month is decided upon by myself in consultation with Grace (we try to follow a flow of learning new techniques, keeping things seasonal, etc.) and the second recipe of the month is chosen at random from your nominations. Leave a comment below with the recipe you’d like to try and the page number, I’ll announce the chosen recipe at the end of the week!

We will cook this recipe onĀ Wednesday, November 28th.
