Ingredients

2 tbsp fragrant Thai paste by Sainsbury's
400ml tin reduced fat coconut milk
2 red chillies, deseeded and chopped
Zest and juice of 2 limes, plus extra wedges to serve
1 tbsp mirin by Sainsbury's

Method

In a large pan over a medium heat, fry the Thai base for 1-2 mins until fragrant. Pour in the coconut milk and 100ml water and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 2 mins.

Add the chillies, lime zest and juice, mirin, pack choi and mussels. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook for 3-4 mins, or until the mussels open. Discard any mussels that remain shut.

Garnish the mussels with the coriander and serve with the bread and a wedge of lime on the side.
