Mussels in Oyster Sauce

Mussel is one of my favorite food! Despite my allergy to seafood, I always cook this for my family. This dish is not expensive and can serve 3-5 persons. Add bird’s eye chilies if you like it spicy.


1/2 kg mussels, cleaned

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 garlic, crushed

3 tbsp oil

3 tbsp oyster sauce

1/2 cup water

1 bunch of scallions, chopped

3-5 pcs bird’s eye chili, chopped (optional)



Put the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for a minute, then add the garlic and saute for 2 minutes more. Add the oyster sauce and water. Stir the ingredients to combine and simmer. Put the mussels in and steam with the lid on for about 6 minutes or until the mussels have opened. Add half of the scallions and the chilies and cook for 2 minutes more. Turn the heat off and serve the mussels with sliced scallions as garnish.
