Heat the oil in a large wok and stir-fry the shallots, galangal, and garlic for 1-2 minutes, until they start to soften. Add the coconut milk, lemongrass, fish sauce, and chili sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and let simmer for 1-2 minutes.
Add the shrimp, squid, salmon, and tuna, and let simmer for 3-4 minutes, until the shrimp have turned pink and the fish is cooked.
Add the mussels and cover with a lid. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes, until they have opened. Discard any mussels that remain closed. Garnish with Chinese chives and serve immediately with rice.
