Salmon is one of my favorite fish. I am not sure I have ever seen it served in Greece! Is it because it might not be readily available?

That being said, it is available where I live and I am wondering which "Greek" ways of preparing fish are best for salmon, if any? I am okay if it is a bit outside the box, or "Greek inspired".

I use ladolmeno for my "Greek-style" salmon! I tend to use a shallot instead of garlic or onion, and I dial back on the oregano or sub dill for the oregano.

Ok that's acceptable and sounds delicious!....I am coming!!😁....I will bring a large bottle of wine! 🍷 🍷 I don't drink Krassi now as it would interfere with my eye conditions..... but I will eat enough of your salmon to make up for the wine... Kalley Mera from Thailand!
 

Best Greek Olive Oil for Salads?

I’m looking to elevate my salad game and have heard that Greek olive oil is a fantastic choice for getting that rich, authentic flavor. With so many options out there, I’m a bit overwhelmed and could use some guidance from those who have experience in this area.

What are your top recommendations for the best Greek olive oil to use for salads? I'm specifically looking for:
  1. Quality: I want something that's high-quality with a robust flavor profile.
  2. Authenticity: Ideally, the olive oil should be authentic and imported from Greece.
  3. Versatility: While my main focus is on salads, it would be great if the olive oil can also be used for other dishes.
I’ve heard brands like Kalios, Iliada, and Gaea are pretty good, but I’d love to hear your personal favorites and why you recommend them.

I'm intrigued by Greek wines and recently came across Retsina wine. Could anyone share insights into what Retsina wine is? I'm curious about its unique flavor profile, production methods, and any cultural significance it holds in Greece. How is it traditionally enjoyed, and are there specific dishes it pairs well with?

Moreover, I'd appreciate recommendations on notable brands or regions known for producing quality Retsina. If you have any personal experiences with Retsina or tips on where to purchase it outside of Greece, that would be fantastic too.
