What's the easiest way possible to cook prawns and mussels? Baked mussels are surely tasty meal but require longer time to prepare, ditto with the prawns. I want something tasty for both prawns and mussels yet require shorter cooking time.

So tonight, I decided to just have them boiled. You’ve probably wondering how I could make them tasteful. Of course, I didn’t just boil them in plain water. I used 7-UP (soda)!



500g Green Mussels

500g Prawns/Shrimps (suahe)

500ml 7-UP soda

½ tsp brown sugar

1 tbsp Fish Sauce (Patis)

1 tbsp minced ginger

Cut onion leaks (3-5 leaves)

Ground black pepper



  1. In a sauce pan, combine all ingredients.
  2. Marinate prawns and mussels together for 30 minutes.
  3. Bring to boil until the prawns complete changed color and mussels’ shells opened.
  4. Season to taste with ground black pepper.
  5. Serve while hot.


Makes 4-6 servings.

Tip:  Do not over boil.
