Mussels Vinaigrette

Serves 6 to 8 as an appetizer or tapas
Time 45 min
These delectable mussels make an ideal light bite to serve as an appetizer or as part of a tapas meal. The key to keeping mussels plump and tender is not to overcook them; watch them carefully and make sure you remove them from the heat the minute they open.

  • 1 pound mussels (about 24), scrubbed
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

Method

Place wine in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. 

Add mussels and cover the pot; cook, stirring once, until mussels open, about 3 minutes. 

Immediately remove from the heat and allow mussels to cool. 

Discard any mussels that do not open.

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, salt and cayenne. 

Stir in bell pepper, onion and parsley. 

Open mussels and place each mussel meat in half of a shell and arrange on a platter. 

Spoon about 1 teaspoon of vinaigrette into each shell. 

Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes and up to 8 hours.
