  • Remove mussels with a slotted spoon; discard cooking liquid. Chill mussels in a bowl in the refrigerator, about 1 hour.

  • Whisk together mustard, chopped shallots, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Pour in remaining 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking until emulsified. Whisk in parsley. Vinaigrette can be stored in the refrigerator up to 3 days.

  • Toss chilled mussels with 1/2 cup vinaigrette. If desired, serve on the half shell on a bed of lettuce. Garnish with parsley. Drizzle with more vinaigrette, if desired.
