Super Easy BBQ Mussels with Lemongrass, Chilli & Coconut
With classic flavours of butter, garlic, chilli, ginger, lemongrass and lime, these mussels are a sure winner. Super simple to cook, just wrap the ingredients in a parcel and throw on the BBQ until the mussels have just opened.

Serves 4



100g softened butter

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 long green chilli, seeded and chopped

1 tbsp finely grated ginger

1 tsp finely grated lime zest

1kg green-lipped mussels, scrubbed and debearded

1 lemongrass, white part split and cut into lengths

2 kaffir lime leaves

⅓ cup coconut cream



  1. Combine the butter, garlic, chilli, ginger and lime zest in a small food processor and process until combined.
  2. Lay three 40cm sheets of foil on a bench. Add the mussels, lemongrass, lime leaves and top with butter. Drizzle with coconut cream and wrap the parcel tightly.
  3. To cook, preheat barbecue or grill over high heat. Add the mussel parcel, close the lid or cover with a metal bowl or tray and cook for 15 minutes, or until the mussels are just cooked.
  4. Take off the heat and set aside, wrapped, to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Unwrap the mussels and serve. Discard any unopened mussels.
