DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Reduce liquid by half and add oil and orange juice.
  • Divide mussels on the half shell (discarding other shell) evenly between soup plates and add broth. Garnish with orange mayonnaise and sprigs of cilantro.
  • 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.
