Spaghetti with Mussel in Padangnese Chili Sauce
Recipe : from Ika Ray Kitchen with some adjustment to my own taste

500 gr green shell mussels (scrubs and clean the Shell)
water for boiling the mussels
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cm ginger root, minced
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
3 tbsp tomato ketchup
4 tbsp Indonesian hot sauce (or put as much as desired) - as known as sambal botol ABC
sugar and salt as desired

Spices to grind:
3 tbsp sambal oelek or a big red chili
6 shallots
3 garlic
1/2 tsp terasi (dried shrimp paste)
1. In a pot, bring water to a boil. Add mussels, cook for about 10-15 minutes
2. In a large skillet or saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and ground spice and saute over moderate heat, stirring often until fragrant. Add ketchup, hot sauce
3. Add mussels. Adjust the taste , put enough salt and sugar - cook about 5-10 minute until bubbling. Add lime juice; stir. Bring to a boil and let the sauce thicken
4. Cook your spaghetti according the direction in the box (mine : al dente) - and enjoy
