We had decided yesterday what we were going to cook this evening. I had something akin to a craving and as Z was going shopping anyway, I dispatched her to Leeds Kirkgate Market to raid the stalls of Fish Row. Sadly I had completely forgotten that mussels are now out of season* so a rethink was in order.
I had planned to make a Thai style mussel dish and serve some satay vegetables on the side. It didn't take much to elevate the satay from side dish to main event. We had already bought the sauce from Taste on Vicar Lane. We also had onions and a green aubergine in the fridge so all that was needed was some pork. The kebabs were marinated with lime juice and light soy sauce before grilling. This was a million miles away from the food I was craving, but it was great. I'll just have to wait until September before I can have the mussels I wanted.
*Only eat mussels when there is an R in the month.
