Deep Fried Mussels

(Midye Tava - Istanbul)

Deep Fried Mussels
~25 mussels, cleaned
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sunflower oil

6 tbsp all purpose flour
1 cup beer
1 tbsp butter, melted

Heat the oil in the pan. Whisk all the batter ingredients in a large bowl.

Dip each mussel into the flour, then into the butter. Arrange them on the wood skewers. Then, gently lower them into the hot oil and deep-fry until golden.

Place them on a plate with a paper towel to soak up extra oil. Serve Fried Mussels with Tarator Sauce while still hot.
