Greek Seafood Recipes

Because Greece is made up of many islands it has a huge coastline and fish is plentiful and varied.

Recipes are heavily tomato and olive oil based. Much like all Mediterranean cookery, it is a very healthy diet with meat playing a lesser part in meals and vegetables and herbs making local cuisine very tasty.

Fish features heavily in Greek cooking and the two recipes below are typically Greek - they are adapatable to the fish you will find in your local stores - most white non oily fish will do.

Greek Baked Fish

1 large onion, peeled and sliced thinly
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
1lb (450g)ripe tomatoes, skinned and roughly chopped

freshly chopped parsley to garnish

Heat the oven to Gas Mark 5, 375F or 190C

Heat some oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic until softened.

Add the chopped tomatoes, wine and pepper.

Simmer until thickened - about 15 minutes.

Arrange the fish in a single layer in an ovenproof dish - season with salt and pepper, sprinkle over the lemon juice.

Pour the sauce over the fish and arrange the sliced tomato on top.

Bake uncovered until the fish is cooked - about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet.
