We love everything from the sea!
Fresh local seafood is a beautiful whole ingredient that should be harvested from open waters versus farming operations. Farming operations tend to over crowd increasing waste. Increased waste causes disease and hence the need to use antibiotics. Also, a lot of farming operations use grains or corn to feed which is not their natural source of food.
I came across a bag of fresh mussels and had to make a savory broth to bathe them in!
I started by heating small diced onions and garlic in a large pan of grass fed butter. Once they turned translucent I add the the mussels and a cup of white wine. I steamed them for about 8 minutes.
To the sauce I added a 1/2 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of coconut milk.
I added chopped fresh basil, sumac and to add some spice to this coconut goodness I add a decent amount of Ghost Pepper Sea Salt!!! Perfection...
