Method

First

Heat the olive oil in a large pan with a lid. Add the shallots, lemongrass, and chilli, and fry for a couple of minutes to soften. Add the white wine and bring to the boil.

Second

Toss in the mussels, the coconut milk, and the lychees. Cover the pan and give it a proper shake. After 2 or 3 minutes, all the mussels should have opened (discard any which remain closed). Season with salt and pepper, and serve in a bowl with coriander scattered on top.

Wine Match

For the perfect wine pairing, crack open a bottle of the round and refreshing Fattori Gregoris Soave 2016. These two should be a winning combo!
