Rinse the fresh blue cultured mussels in tap water.

In a saucepan, bring water or wine to boil.

Add fresh blue mussels, cover and steam over high heat until open (5-8 minutes). Remove from heat, reserving 2 tbsp of cooking liquid. Remove mussel meat from shells, reserving half-shells.

In a bowl, combine reserved liquid, oil, lemon juice, garlic, parsley mixture and tomatoes; add fresh blue mussels and stir gently.

Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours.

To serve, place a mussel in each half shell and cover with tomato mixture. Arrange on a platter.
