Get the Grill on for Yum-Yum Mussels!

It’s summer here in sunny Auckland and, for me, nothing beats getting the grill on for a feast of fresh seafood and smoky vegetables!

Grilled mussels are always popular but accompanied with this amazing Yum-Yum sauce makes it spectacular! It only takes minutes to make and is creamy, tangy and sweet with a hint of chili kick- you’ll want to put it on everything!



  • 10 cooked mussels in half shell
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1-2 tsp malt vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • A dash of chilli powder
  1. Combine mayonnaise, tomato sauce, sugar, vingear/lemon juice, paprika, garlic powder and chili powder to make the Yum Yum sauce. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  2. Top each mussel with the sauce and place under the grill until the sauce is bubbling hot. Serve immediately.

  1. Most mussel sauce recipes require ingredients I never have but this one is such an easy but delicious looking recipe! I’ll try this out for sure. Did you know you can blowtorch mayo? Might be another interesting way to prepare this heh.
