Fried mussels
Preparation Time: 
30 minutes

Vegetable oil, for deep-frying 
2 1/4 lb (l kg) large mussels, shucked
Batter for frying or all-purpose (plain) flour, for coating 
Lemon wedges, to garnish 
Eggplant (Aubergine) dip or Taramosalata to serve

Cooking Time: 
15 minutes
Cooking Directions: 

Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 390°F (200°C). Dip the mussels, one by one, in the batter or coat with flour, shaking off any excess. 
Carefully drop the mussels into the hot oil and deep-fry for a few minutes, until golden brown. 
Fry only a few mussels at a time to avoid lowering the temperature of the oil. 
Remove with a slotted spoon, drain, and arrange on a warm platter. Season with salt and pepper. 
Garnish with lemon wedges and serve immediately with Tzatziki, Eggplant (Aubergine) dip, or Taramosalata.
