The recipe of Black Sea Midye Salat is very simple but the final taste is very light and delicious.

The key of importance is the quality of mussels. Use already cooked ones and without shells.

If you use fresh mussels it requires very careful cleaning before usage. Selection of the mussels requires only undamaged and fresh-smelling ones. All mussels should be tightly closed and any of them should be rejected if they do not shut when tapped.
