Stuffed mussels (Turkish: Midye dolma[1]) is a generic name for meals made of plump orange mussels, herbed and spiced rice, pine nuts, and occasionally currants. It is a popular and common street food in Istanbul, Turkey. 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.
