    Units: US | Metric

    For the orange mayonnaise


    1. 1
      To prepare mussels, wash well and remove beard with paring knife and then place mussels in a large pot with garlic, orange zest, chipotle and water and bring to a boil, cover and let steam for 4-5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Discard any mussels that don't open. Remove mussels and keep covered.
    2. 2
      Reduce liquid by half and add oil and orange juice.
    3. 3
      Divide mussels on the half shell (discarding other shell) evenly between soup plates and add broth. Garnish with orange mayonnaise and sprigs of cilantro.
    4. 4
      To make orange mayonnaise: beat egg yolk until light lemon color and then transfer to blender. Blend yolk while adding oil, a tiny bit at a time, pouring through cover, on low until all the oil is used. Put on high speed until combined. Add remaining ingredients (orange zest - cilantro) and blend. Let stand one hour before serving.

      This was so so good! The mussles I bought couldn`t get fresher if I dug them myself! It came in 5 pound bags so we made a meal out of them. I sauteed the garlic in the oil then added all the ingredients using only 1 1/2 cups of hot water not 4 cups. I served with sliced, oven toasted Italian bread to absorb all the wonderful juices which I did not cook down. I made my own dip from store bought mayonnaise. Ellie, this was GREAT!
