NZ Greenshell™ Mussel lettuce parcels with Thai style dressing

Details

Serves: Makes approx 15 canapés

Method

•  Steam the mussels until just cooked, set aside & allow to cool.
•  Mix all other ingredients except the lettuce & mussels in a bowl.
•  Place the mixture into individual lettuce leaves so that the lettuce cradles the mixture making it easy to pickup as a wrap, place the whole mussel on top & lightly dress with the dressing.
•  Can be garnished with more fresh coriander & a small jug of any left over dressing. The mussel shell can also act as a natural cradle to support the mussel lettuce parcel.

Dressing

•  Mix chilli, garlic, ginger & coriander & using a mortar and pestle or blender, crush until you have a rough paste. (Alternatively, chop all as finely as possible.)
•  Add sugar in small amounts until dissolved.
•  Add fish sauce and lime juice to taste.
