Combine lemon juice, Dijon, white wine vinegar, capers, shallots and salt and pepper in the blender. Blend for ten seconds, and then, with the machine running, slowly drizzle in both of the oils, capers, mustard and pepper in a medium bowl.
To serve mix the cooked mussels with some of the Dijon Dressing. Transfer to china bowl and top with the roasted red peppers and chopped parsley.
