Tasty fresh mussels are steamed in a mixture of tequila and lime juice. Flavour is also added from the capsicum, onion, pepper and chillies they are cooked with.
This was Great! I didn't want to lose the taste of all the ingredients in the streaming so I steamed the mussels in water, a bit of lime juice and a splash of tequila then used the recipe to pour over mussels when they were done and in the bowl. Very Good. - 15 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Quick and easy to make with stuff we had on hand, including jalapeños. This recipe is better than most restaurants. Didn't change a thing! - 23 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I did not like this recipe at all. I'm giving it 2 stars only because my husband thought they were "ok". The sauce needs to be thicker, I think, so that the sauce will stick to the mussels. The flavor was not good, the cilantro overwhelming. Sorry. - 23 May 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
