   MAYONNAISE----------------------------- *      Cut the
   zest from the oranges in very long strips. **
       Puree the canned chiles. ***    You can also use
   light fish broth in place of the water. ****   The egg
   yolk should be at room temperature. To prepare the
   mussels, place in a large pot together with the
   garlic, orange zest, chipotle, and water.  Cover,
   bring to a boil and steam for 4 minutes.  Remove the
   pot from the heat and let sit for 5 minutes; mussels
   should then be open.  Remove the mussels and keep
   covered in a warm place.  Reduce the liquid by half
   and add the oil and orange juice. Divide the mussels
   on the half-shell evenly between soup plates and add
   the broth.  Garnish each bowl with 1 Tbls of Orange
   Mayonnaise and 3 sprigs of cilantro.
   ORANGE MAYONNAISE:
   Beat the egg yolk in a glass or stainless steel bowl
   until light and lemon colored.  Transfer to a blender
   and add the oil drop by drop for the first 1/4 of a
   cup, then the remainder in a slow steady stream,
   mixing at high speed until emulsified.  Add the other
   sauce ingredients and blend together.  Let sit for at
   least 1 hour to allow the orange flavor to develop.
