Recipe type: Main Dish
Number of serving: 4 servings
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Ready in: 40 minutes
Difficulty: Very Easy


- a kilo of medium sized tahong
- 5 gloves garlic, peeled and crushed,
- 1 thumb sized ginger, peeled and
- julienned,
- 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped,
- 5 medium tomatoes, chopped,
- ½ teaspoon ground pepper,
- 1 teaspoon salt or to taste and about 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
- Additionally, we also need, 3 pieces petchay or bok choi or young chili leaves (tops).


Step 1: The cooking process is straightforward sautéing. In a large casserole or pan, heat the oil in medium flame.

Step 2: Fry the garlic, followed by ginger. Add in the chopped tomatoes and continue frying until soft and mushy.

Step 3: Add in mussels and continue sautéing until it renders out its own liquid and shells starts to open.

Step 4: Continue simmering with liquid that comes out. Add some more hot water or better yet, rice washing (second wash) if you want it soupier.

Step 5: Add ground pepper and season it with salt to taste. Mussels usually packed some salty liquid inside the shell so taste and watch out adding salt.

Step 6: Add the petchay or any veggies of your choice and continue simmering until the vegetable is cooked through.

Step 7: Transfer in a shallow bowl and serve hot along side with some fried fish and steamed rice.
