I hope everyone have had a great July 4th celebration. This July 4th marks the 7th anniversary of Rasa Malaysia. Yep, seven years ago on July 4th, 2006, I started Rasa Malaysia as a hobby. Never have I thought that this humble blog has flourished into something so big and meaningful…I have to thank you—my readers. Thanks for staying with me and your tremendous support all these years, and I hope to be serving you more easy and delectable recipes in many years to come. Thank you!
Anyway, everything has been going very well for me on Rasa Malaysia and I am so excited that I am one of the contributors to the launch of KithenAid’s new blog “Kitchenthusiasts.” My challenge was “Rock a Cookout” with KitchenAid Outdoor Grill. Summer is in full swing now and I’m sure everyone has many summer BBQ’s to attend to. To me, there is nothing more fun—and delicious—than having your friends and family together for a summer cookout with an outdoor grill.
While chicken, steak, and burgers are popular, I wanted to challenge myself to rock a cookout with fresh mussels. Mussels are briny and they are especially enticing—and aromatic— when grilled over fire. My recipe is quick and easy, and the total prep time and cook time are short so you can have more fun mingling with your friends and family instead of manning the grill all day long. I love pairing these Lemongrass and Coconut Cream Grilled Mussels with cold beer as they are absolutely delightful and addictive.
