    Transylmania's Note:

    This is a really easy one. In Romania this is most commonly eaten with fish or grilled pork or chicken. It is GREAT with many things though (french fries, pizza etc.) This is a slightly more complicated version that is more common in Transylvania. In the south the ingredients are usually just garlic, salt, and water. A mortar and pestle are most traditional but you can also use a garlic press or very finely mince the garlic as well.

      I am going to give this 5 stars even though in romania the mujdei and smintina (sour cream) are served separately. Mujdei is the ultimate garlic sauce and my very not-romanian husband LOVES it. We spoon it over polenta or mashed potatoes as well as meat and fish. It is so garlicky it is spicy. I do occasionally add flat leaf parsley to it.
