Stir-Fried Mussels with Basil

I’ve spent hours on cooking some of the special dishes before, when it’s necessary. But after a long day at work (9 ½ hrs), I’m always trying to find a way to whip up a quick delicious dinner. Having said that, today I’m sharing with you a dish that takes no more than 15 minutes. It could be good appetizer for 4 or could be a meal for 2 pairing with some steam rice and veggies. Bonus: basil is from our little garden in the back yard. I love cooking with freshly picked.


1 1/2 lbs kiwi mussels
1 white onion (peeled and slices)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
Bunch of fresh basil
1 tablespoon tum yum paste
1 ½ tablespoon water
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon olive oil



Do you like mussels? What is your go to lazy day recipe?
