I made mussels for the first time tonight for dinner. They were steamed with a white wine and tarragon broth. Being Chinese, I dropped a couple chunks of garlic in the broth since that’s what I always do when I cook seafood. It was a pretty easy dish to prepare which was good because I was also preparing four other dishes for dinner.
Simmering at the top right is fresh bamboo in a soy sauce and mirin broth. It was my first time preparing fresh bamboo in this way and it was so simple but highlighted the fresh bamboo so well I’m definitely going to make this a repeat performance. I wanted a no-fuss soup tonight so I made kimchi and tofu soup with the over-salted kimchi.
