Let this mixture boil and add the prepared mussels. Slightly add salt, mix and turn off the heat after 5 minutes. Then discard the mussels.
Make sauce
Mix in the desired proportions mayonnaise, ketchup, squeezed garlic, lemon juice and finely chopped greens. Put mussels on a baking sheet, grease each mussel with sauce and put in a preheated oven for 7-10 minutes. While they are baking, grate cheese on a fine grater, sprinkle mussels on top. Put in the oven for another 3-5 minutes to melt the cheese. Sprinkle hot mussels with cheese with chopped herbs – parsley and dill.
Serve with crispy white bread and wine.
