Cooking: Mussels with Garlic, Shallot, Chilli and a special sauce

Parents bought some mussels at Vic Market after going to the Buddha Festival at Fed Square.

Ingredients: Mussels. 1 Shallot diced. 2-3 cloves Garlic sliced. 1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes. 1/2 cup White wine. 1 tsp-tbsp Nandos sauce. Drizzle of cream. Squeeze of lemon/lime.
Method: Saute shallot, garlic, chilli flakes until translucent. Add nandos sauce (don't go too crazy). Add mussels then white wine. Cook for a couple of minutes lid on until mussels have opened. Take mussels out into serving bowl. Turn heat on high. Pour in cream. Taste and season (salt is not needed as mussels generally release salt water/juice). Pour the hot sauce over the mussels. Squeeze a little bit of lemon/lime juice over the top.
Sooooooo yummy. Make sure you have some crust bread to mop up all the sauce =)

This might be my last food post for a little while. Have to get my head down and study for mid year exams =S
