1 Dozen Black Mussels
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Clean the mussels well and set aside. Place a large pan onto the stove set for Medium-High heat. Add a drizzle of Olive Oil. Wash and cut Leek, using only the white part, to create little circles and simmer in the pan until they start to loosen up. Pour in the White Wine, Garlic, Mustard, and simmer until the mixture has reduced to about half. Stir in the Heavy Cream and Tomatoes, bring to a simmer and season with Sea Salt and Paprika. In goes the Mussels! Toss lightly until the all of the Mussels open. Pour into a bowl and sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese and Bread Crumb. Drizzle with Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar.
