Pickled Red Onion Petals
Rating: Unrated
Theses pickled red onion petals are slightly saltier than your average pickled onion, but the brine amps up the fresh in the mussels, making them a perfect pair.
Toasted walnuts are a surprise addition to the creamy, smoky red pepper puree that gets swirled into these harissa-spiked steamed mussels. Anisey Thai basil and salty-sour pickled onions compliment the sweet, plump mussels.
