MUSSELS IN GARLIC&LEMON (Limon ve sarimsakli Midye)

This dish is very good as a starter but I served it with spicy rice as it is a tradition in Turkey to serve mussels with rice. Serves 2

  • 10 or 15 cooked mussels
  • Some home made or ready made garlic butter
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped finely
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 slice of stale bread crumbs
  • salt and black pepper to taste
Mix garlic butter with parsley, lemon juice, bread crumbs, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Divide the mixture and top each mussel pressing firmly. Preheat the grill. Grill the mussels on medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until all the mussels nice and crispy. Serve it immediately.
