Greek Mezze Platter

on

Cu dor mare de Grecia, de aromele unui Greek Mezze Platter si cu cateva ingrediente care nu imi lipsesc niciodata din frigider, ma apuc de treaba. Plec de la o vanata si ma gandesc cu ce sa o asortez. Parca ar merge un tzatiki sau o tigaie de creveti saganaki sau de ce nu o branza kefalograviera prajita. Cu acest gand incep prepararea si cu pasi mici am umplut masa cu aromele Greciei.

Greek Mezze Platter

INGREDIENTE / INGREDIENTS:

Vinete cu usturoi si feta

Spalam vanata si o taiem in doua pe lung. Cu ajutorul unui cutit crestam miezul vinetei pe diagonala cu grija astfel incat sa nu strapungem coaja. Presaram cu sare si turnam jumatate din cantitatea de ulei. Taiem usturoiul si branza in feliute subtiri si le introducem in vanata. Turnam deasupra restul de ulei de masline si introducem tava in cuptorul incins la 180 grade Celsius timp de 40 de minute. Servim vanata cu rosii taiate cubulete si busuioc.

English version

Greek Mezze Platter

Baked eggplant with garlic and feta

Wash the eggplant and cut it in half on the long side. Using a knife, cut the core of the eggplant diagonally carefully not to pierce the peel. Sprinkle with salt and pour half the amount of oil. Cut the garlic and cheese into thin slices and insert them into the eggplant cracks. Pour the rest of the olive oil on top and put the tray in the oven heated to 180 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes. Serve the eggplant with diced tomatoes and basil.

Saganaki Shrimps

In a frying pan, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil and lightly sauté the finely chopped onion and 2 cloves of crushed garlic. Add tomato paste, salt, pepper and dried hot pepper and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Then add the peppers cut into thin slices and leave on the fire for 5 minutes. Pour the sauce into a heat-resistant form greased with olive oil and prepare the shrimps. Wash the shrimp, peel them (if necessary) and sprinkle with salt and chilli flakes. Heat 2 tablespoons oil, add shrimp, 2 cloves crushed garlic, white wine and fry for 1-2 minutes on each side. Pour the shrimp over the tomato sauce, sprinkle the feta cheese and put them in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 5 minutes.

Greek flavors chicken

Sprinkle the chicken breast strips with salt, oregano and chilli flakes. Let marinate for 30 minutes. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the chicken breast strips, crushed garlic and white wine. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side and add the butter. Let it melt and serve the chicken with the delicious sauce from the pan.

Grilled octopus

I chose to use a previously boiled octopus. Sprinkled the 2 tentacles with salt and put them in a grill pan. Fry them for 2 minutes on each side. Take them out on a plate and sprinkle with tomato , red onion, olive oil and lemon juice salad.

Fried kefalograviera cheese

Heat the olive oil in a pan. Pass the cheese through cold water and then through flour. Fry on both sides until the cheese is nicely browned. Serve on a plate with the olive oil in the pan.

If you liked the Greek Mezze Platter recipe, I recommend you try the best tzatiki, a mixed fish and seafood dish with Greek flavors or a gyros burger.
