  2. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  3. Rub baguette with duck fat on cut sides. Place on a baking sheet and set under broiler. Broil until browned and crunchy, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Divide mussels between 2 serving bowls. Pour broth over mussels. Top with sliced basil. Serve with crunchy baguette.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also grill the baguette until browned and crisp.
