I did mention that there is this lovely Turkish store right in my neighborhood…shopping there is like shopping at a Greek local Manaviko of the 70 ies. Every time I go there, I find more common ground between the Turks and the Greeks, the names of food and spices…
Recently, I found a fish which we used to eat quite a lot back when we lived in Greece. I never liked to cook fish much, cause cleaning and handling it always made me feel queazy.
But, the kids love this fish, so it had to come home with me.
Not having a balcony for a BBQ can be a problem which can be overcome by an oven!
Tasty Fish in Baking paper
Dorade (Gilt head bream)
Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius
wash the fish thoroughly and pat dry
slice lemon and garlic
sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper inside out
place the slice of lemon, several slices of garlic and about a teaspoon of parsley into the abdominal cavity
place fish on the baking sheet
sprinkle with lemon juice and olive oil
Last -put another slice of lemon and some more garlic on top
sprinkle with more chopped parsley
Fold the baking paper to shape into a package(alternatively if you have kitchen string you can tie up the ends).
Then put the package on a baking dish and place it into the preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes(depending on the size of the fish).
To serve –
Place the package on a plate.
Goes well with Greek Salad and pan potatoes.
…oh and a lovely dry white wine of your choice.
