Spaghetti with Mussels

One for the Italians.

Mussels are about all I can afford here! Wow but Norway is expensive, 2.5 euro for a liter of milk is a bit excessive I’d say..

It seems like many people live on bread and fish here. Well the bread is very good and hey, they have been living on fish for 10 000 years. Why stop now?

Oh yes, and a lot, really a lot of pizza.

While the spaghetti is boiling, warm a pan to medium heat and add a tablespoon or two of butter together with a teaspoon of sesame seed oil.

Add two cloves of crushed garlic and fry for a bit, then add one or two dozen mussels (according to the number of people you are feeding) and continue frying slowly together with a quarter teaspoon of curry masala (or according to your taste).

When the flavours have had a chance to blend, add a three quarter cup of fish stock and allow to boil slowly for 2 – 3 minutes, or until all your mussels are open if you are using fresh mussels. Throw all mussels that remain closed away.
