A light coconut broth bathes plump mussels, creamy potatoes and crisp-tender bok choy in this aromatic, Asian-inspired meal. Prep tip: A mussel's beard, or byssus thread, is the fiber that protrudes from the shell. Your market's fishmonger can remove them for you. Ingredient tip: Look for frozen fish stock at your natural market; it's sold in tubs, usually near the fish counter. Defrost before using.
- Place potatoes in a deep 12-inch skillet and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 8—10 minutes or until tender. Drain. Wipe skillet dry.
- Add sesame oil to skillet over medium heat. Add shallots, ginger, and garlic. Cook, stirring, until shallots are translucent, about 5 minutes. (Add 1 teaspoon water, if necessary, to prevent sticking.) Add fish stock, coconut milk, water, lime juice, and soy sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes. Add bok choy. Cook, covered, 4 minutes.
- Add mussels and cook, covered, until mussels open and bok choy is tender, about 5 minutes longer. (Discard mussels that don't open.) Divide mussels, bok choy, and potatoes among serving bowls. Ladle on coconut broth and garnish with cilantro.
