Mussels complement Thai flavors very well. In Washington State we can buy 5 lbs of fresh Penn Cove mussels for about $12, and we're always experimenting with them to create tasty Thai recipes. This one is adopted from a cookbook created by the family that owns Healthy Boy brand soy sauce.

Place mussels into a casserole dish with lid. In a saucepan fry garlic, add yellow bean sauce, chile, basil, cilantro, sugar, oyster sauce, and soup stock. Stir until well-combined, then add tapioca flour that's been soaked in 1 tablespoon water. Bring to boil and stir. As it thickens, add sesame oil and whiskey. Pour this over mussels and bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
