Dynamite Mussels

These mussels are exceptionally easy to make.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag frozen mussels (I bought mine from the asian store)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (you can use the Japanese Kewpie brand or regular mayo)
  • a few squirts of sriracha sauce (adjust to your liking)
  • smelt roe fish eggs (optional)
     
  1. Thaw the mussels. Pat dry with a towel or napkin.
     
  2. Place mussels on parchment paper on a baking sheet.
     
  3. Mix the mayonnaise and sriracha sauce together til it blends together.
     
  4. Using a spoon, scoop out the sauce and layer it onto the mussels generously.
     
  5. Broil in the oven for about 5-10 minutes until it turns golden brown.
     
  6. Remove from oven and serve hot.

Variations

  • Add the smelt roe after you layer the mussels with mayo / sriracha sauce.
  • You can also cut up the mussels into smaller pieces and then place them back on the shells, then add the sauce and bake.  It makes it easier for eating.

Enjoy! Leave me any comments if you tried this! :-)

What other options do I have besides cooking them in the oven?  Thanks

You can steam them, boil them.  It just tastes a bit different by the cooking methods.

I never knew how these things are made.  Now I do, thanks for sharing.

You are welcome

How high do we broil them at?

500 degrees

Hello there i just want to know where can i find the smelt roe fish egg? Can i find them at any asian store?   Let me know i would like to try this dish.  Thanks.

Most places that sell fish have it if you live in the big city. Or it may be in the freezer or frozen section.

Can you do a video on youtube on how you do this? i would really like that. 

Sure. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm not trying to rush you or anything, but when will you be able to do a video on this recipes?

So you don't have to marinate it with salt nor pepper before broiling them?

No, you don't need salt because the mayo is salty.

Is possible for you to upload a video as well?

I haven't made a video yet.

Can u post up a video?

Besides parchment paper, can u just use a rack ?

Yes, you can! :-) You don't need parchment paper but it makes cleanup easier.

If you can't handle any type of hot sauce, period, can you substitute the sriracha sauce for something else? Or can you make this without the sriracha sauce?

Sriracha is optional :-)

Cant wait to try this out next week for my family... I literally on go to asian buffets for this, weird i know lol...  Thanks for your knowledge :)

This seems like an easy method of cooking mussels, I like to try it soon! Hopefully my bf would like it too (:

Do i need to clean frozen mussels or should they be completely cooked and cleaned already???
