There’s something about seafood that lights a passionate fire in our hearts. Looking at the variety of dishes, the beautiful presentation of shrimps or salmon on a plate, makes us want to have seafood every day.
Not only that, seafood is excellent for your health. Rich in omega-3, certain types of fish are rich in antioxidants that promote hair growth, skin repair, and regulate blood circulation.
So if you’re planning a vacation to Greece, there is a few dishes you absolutely cannot miss out on!
Some of these are:
If you want to taste the delicious seafood of Greece, start with Greek mussels. The salty broth that comes with Greek mussels is to die for. Cooked in tomato sauce and feta cheese, you simply can’t go wrong with these.
This dish is popular in restaurants in the northern side of Greece. So if you visit the north, make sure to at least try this once!
Greek Lobster Pasta
You can’t visit Greece and not try lobster pasta! For a special treat. This classic, delicious summer dish is perfect for when you want something Mediterranean and scrumptious. The Aegean Sea is host to several types of lobsters. Try their wonderful Pasts dish, made using lobster. Sautéed in garlic paste and a pinch of star anise, you can even ask the chef to customize it the way you want!
Greek Fried Anchovies
Who doesn’t love anchovies? They’re delicious, healthy and absolutely amazing! They’re also great for those who have heart problems. Those who are health-conscious can enjoy this wonderful, hearty (pun-intended) meal! Greek seafood, when prepared in olive oil also has a good deal of health benefits.
Greek Cod with Garlic Sauce
This dish is a classic because it dates back to the time when refrigeration was not an option. Preserved using salt, it was popular throughout ancient Greece, and still is today! It’s made with cod fish, soaked in water for at least 48 hours. Served with delicious garlic sauce, it’s a mouth-watering treat!
If you love garlic, Skordalia is a perfect dip to accompany most fish dishes. It is made with mashed potatoes, flavored with olive oil, vinegar, almonds, and plenty of raw garlic.
