Recipe: Mussels in Lemon Butter Wine Sauce (หอมแมลงภู่ในซอสไวน์ขาว)

#FoodFriday is back! After having had some cool collaborations in our fitness section (thx to Angel Chan!) we learned that nutrition is rather important when it comes to a healthy lifestyle. A few weeks ago we now had the chance to try an online supermarket here in Bangkok. Now we’re bringing it all together and bringing you some cool and delicious recipes that you can try on the weekend. You’re welcome.

The wine sauce is so delish!

The succulent Mussels in Wine Sauce are the perfect aperitif for any meal. Light, flavorful, and cooked in a delectable wine sauce that’s slurp-worthy. You’ll want some crusty bread to soak up all the savory sauce from the bowl. See our new recipe every week at
