Thai Curry Coconut Mussel Soup #SundaySupper

If you follow along here you know we are big into soups!! So for this #SundaySupper I jumped right in!! I have made a lot of soups of late so wanted to stray away to something different. Usually Thai cooking can be very exhausting with its endless list of ingredients. Usually it is just small bits of this or that but the list is long!! I wanted to try and avoid that with this soup. Make it easy but still full of flavor. I used my own pickled garlic that I get at the farmers market that I pickle with the small Thai red peppers, so I didn’t need as much heat from the curry paste but you can adjust that to your liking. Enjoy!!

    Now this is a bowl of mussels I would eat in a heartbeat! You know why? I love Thai and curry. Some sticky rice to sop up the broth would be fabulous!!

    I am in love with this flavor combo! The Mr. and I are huge fans of mussels, but I haven’t been brave enough to cook them at home. I don’t know why seafood has always been intimidating for me. This may be the push I needed!
