Clean the mussels before cooking by de-bearding, removing any barnacles with a knife and clean theshells with a scrubber. Remove all the shells that may have opened (these arent safe to eat).
Use a large tall pot with a lid on medium heat. Add in the olive oil and combine with the curry powder. Mix until it becomes smooth. Add in, butter, shallot, garlic and grated ginger, continue to cook for 2 mins. Deglaze the pot with the dry white wine and stir frequently removing all contents from the bottom.
Stir in the cocnut milk until well combined. Season with salt.
Add mussels to pot. Cover tightly with a lid and cook for about 8 mins or until the mussels have all opened. While the mussels are cooking, slice the baguette in half. Coat in olive oil and broil on high heat.
Once the mussels are done cooking, look through for ones that haven! opened and discard them before serving. Garnish with cilantro, fresh squeezed lime, and jalapenos to your desired heat amount. You can also remove the seeds if you'd like it to be less spicy.
