Notes

Enjoy this amazingly delicious dish with heaps of steamed rice!  Be sure that the juices from the mussels and the black bean sauce are generously poured over the rice which will soak up those delicious juices!
A word about the Asian chilies - you can leave them whole for less spice or cut them up so the seeds fall out for more spice.  You can even just add them to the dish for some color, and put them on the side when enjoying these mussels!
