Mussels Marinated in Oil and Herbs

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups of cooked, fresh mussels (or canned or frozen mussels)
  • 4 Tb light olive oil or salad oil
  • 1 Tb dry white vermouth and 1 Tb lemon juice
  • 2 Tb finely minced shallots or green onions
  • 3 Tb minced parsley or a mixture of fresh green herbs
  • Pinch of pepper

Directions

Steam fresh mussels open as directed in moules à la marinière. Discard shells.

Toss the mussels in a bowl with the remaining ingredients and allow them to marinate half an hour before serving. They may be served just as they are, or you may drain them and fold into them half a cup of mayonnaise. Place them in a bowl or individual shells.
