This is an absolutely delicious dish! Being a Freo gal myself now living overseas, I have always been looking out for the perfect chili mussel recipe. I need look no more! This recipe is authentic with the perfect amount of spice to tomato ratio. A suggestion - serve with lightly toasted baguette slices that have their sides rubbed with a garlic clove. Yummo!

I've been in Perth a couple of times and had chilli mussels in Freo. I really loved them and now I wanted to make them her in Holland as well. I searched the australian Google and foud this recipe. It was great! I really loved it! I am going to prepare it for my parents as well as they have lived in Perth and they miss the chilli mussels (among other things). And I gave the recipe to a collegue who is going to prepare it this weekend.
Thank you!

I cooked this recipe with my boyfriend for Valentines Day today, he loved it! The flavour was fantastic. We however didn't think it made enough sauce for 2kg of mussels may increase the amount next time. Also we added a few more large chopped chillies for extra hotness! YumYum.

The recipe provides information that is really easy to follow. The mussels tastes awesome!! We added half a cup of wine for the sauce though and lotsa chili to make it extra spicy. =) Thanks!!

This was great. We lived in Perth for a few years and have been searching for a good spicy mussel recipe for years. This was perfect. Very quick to make and pretty foolproof. This is a regular with us now. Thanks so much for posting it.
