At the Great Bay Restaurant in Kenmore Square, there is a mussels in curry sauce appetizer. This turned out to be a simple dish to make at home. Here's the recipe:

2 - 2 1/2 pounds of mussels
1 tbls garlic (minced)
1 tbls shallot (minced)
2 tbls curry paste
2 tbls curry powder
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
1 loaf of Italian bread
2 tbls butter
2 tbls olive oil
2 cans of coconut milk

1. wash and de-beard the mussels
2. heat a pot or large frying pan on medium high
3. add the butter and oil
4. add the tomatoes, garlic, and shallots and cook for 5 minutes
5. add the coconut milk and curry paste and powder and simmer for 8-10 mins
6. add the mussels and cover, cook for 5 minutes
7. serve in big bowls and use the bread to soap up all the yummy curry goodness

We got the Italian bread at the South End Open Market this morning. In the parking lot of the BSC, there were 15-20 little tents with different types of wares for sale. Will have to grab some of the cool South End T-shirts one day.
