Stuffed mussels (Turkish: Midye dolma[1]) is a generic name for meals made of plump orange mussels, herbed rice, pine nuts, and currants. It is a popular and common street food in Istanbul, Turkey. Armenians have the best and oldest recipe according to most people. The stuffed mussels are normally eaten with lemon juice freshly squeezed over them so that the mussel and rice are not dry and so the spices are easily mixed and tasted.
