How to marinate mussels

Rinse and de-beard mussels and put them into a large kettle. Cover securely, turn heat up high and steam in their own juices until open, about five minutes. Cool slightly and remove mussels from their shells reserving a half shell for each mussel.

Make vinaigrette by whisking all ingredients together in a large bowl. Add warm mussels and marinate at room temperature about one hour. To serve, scoop a mussel and marinade onto a shell half. Repeat until all mussels and shells are used and arrange on a large platter. Serves 6.
