hi binnur, i think your recipes are fantastic. I have recently bought some sprats and was wondering what was the best way to cook them?

Thank you:) You can cook with sauce like Haddock Fillets with Sauce or fry like Halibut with Lemon Butter. In each case it will be tasty:)

Thank you for the super recipes Binnur! I lived in northern Turkey for several years and my favorite dish was a fish one. I think it was called "bulama". Could you please post that recipe if you have it? Tessekur ederim!

Thank you:) I think you are asking Hamsi Bugulama which belongs to Northern Turkey:)

Hi Binnur,

When I was in Instanbul I bought roasted, stuffed mussels. I bought them on the street, next to the water. They were stuffed with rice and currants (I think), and we squeezed lemon juice on them. They were completely succulent. Do you have the recipe?

Hi Kristen,
I have the recipe:) I'll post it in the future.

Hey Binnur,
i bought a heap of spices from the markets in istanbul. Do you know any good recipes/uses for turkish lemon salt?

thanks heaps,

Hi Enrique,
We mostly use Turkish lemon salt to make pickles or jam instead of lemon juice to prevent the crystallization at home. It can be also used for food industry.

Had a question about Turkish cuisine so I thought I would ask the expert :)

Is there an authentic dish called midye pilav? It is like midye dolmasi but instead the mussels are removed from their shells and added to the rice mixture.

I have tried this before and it was lovely, just wanted to know how authentic it is or whether it is a spin on a classic.

Hi Sarah,

Thank you:) Midye Pilav is an authentic Turkish dish.
