Baba's Spoon Smoked Mussels comes in 200g bottle. It contains pickled fresh mussels in olive oil, garlic, chilli pepper and spices. The mussels are smoked in mango woods that gives that perfect distinct smoky flavor. Once you open the bottle the smell is reminiscent of tinapa. Upon tasting the mussels are bit sour but every bite is bursting with smoky flavor that makes it very yummy plus the hint of spiciness is just perfect.
This is the dish I thought of using it for - Smoked Mussels Linguine
4 tbsps virgin olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup water
2 pcs tomatoes, chopped
salt and black pepper
1 pound linguine pasta
1 bottle Baba’s Spoon Smoked Mussels
Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
Heat 2 tablespoons virgin olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and pepper flakes and sauté until light golden, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce is thick and flavors blend, stirring frequently. Add Baba’s Spoon Smoked Mussels. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in pasta and serve immediately.
Baba's Spoon Smoked Mussels is a Cavite product definitely worth a try.
