  1. Step 1

    To make the mayonnaise, whisk the egg yolks, lemon juice and mustard in a small bowl. Season. Gradually add the combined oil in a thin, steady stream, whisking constantly until well combined. Continue whisking until the mixture is thick and pale. Season.

  2. Step 2

    Melt the butter and oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until the shallot softens. Increase heat to high. Add the wine or stock and bring to the boil.
  3. Step 3

    Add tomato and mussels to the pan and stir to combine. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 mins or until mussels open (discard any unopened mussels). Remove from heat. Season. Divide mussel mixture among serving bowls. Sprinkle with dill and parsley. Serve with the chips and mayonnaise.
