  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Brush cut sides of baguette with melted butter; sprinkle with 2 cloves of the garlic.
  • 3
    Place bread cut side down on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 1 to 2 minutes on uncut side until grill marks form. Turn; cook 2 to 3 minutes on cut side until grill marks form. Cut into slices on the bias. Set aside.

    In small bowl, mix coconut milk, curry paste and soy sauce. Discard any broken-shell or open mussels that do not close when tapped. Pull up all 4 sides of each sheet of foil. Divide mussels, green onion whites and remaining 2 cloves garlic evenly among sheets of foil; pull sides of foil up around mussels mixture to make a bowl. Pour coconut milk mixture evenly over each. Squeeze 1 wedge of lime over each. Wrap foil securely around mixture. Pierce top of foil once or twice with fork to vent steam.
  • 5
    Place packs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 6 minutes. Rotate packs 1/2 turn; cook 5 to 7 minutes longer or until mussels open. Remove packs from grill. Carefully fold back foil; discard any unopened mussels. Sprinkle with cilantro and green onion greens; serve with remaining lime wedges and baguette.

  • Look for PEI (Prince Edward Island) mussels, as they are consistently sweet and tender – and sometimes they are even sold debearded!
  • Serve with 2 cups cooked rice instead of baguette.
