  • 1 large brown onion, finely sliced
  • 3 tbsp salted black beans, rinsed

  • 1.5kg black mussels, scrubbed and debearded

Heat oil in a wok. Stir-fry chilli, ginger and onion until soft and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add black beans, soy, chilli sauce, water, sugar and sesame oil and bring to a rapid boil for 2 minutes. Add mussels and toss to cover in sauce. Cover with a lid and cook on a high heat until mussels are cooked and open. Stir a few times so they cook evenly. Garnish with shallots and eat as is or with jasmine rice.
