Dinner Dish: Greek Cooking Vacation - Ladolemono Sauce
If you're cooking fish or any kind of meat and want to kick the dish up a notch, consider a sauce called Ladolemono, which hails from Chef Katerina's kitchen and our cooking vacation "Greek Cooking Odyssey."
Like most other Greek recipes, the ingredients in this sauce include olive oil as well as lemons and oregano. In fact, in a way, it's the Greeks version of lemon sauce and tastes much like a vinaigrette. Of this recipe, Chef Katerina says, "This is a sauce that we use almost every day! I always have a small jar of it, with a tight-fitting lid, in the fridge."
Ladolemono sauce ingredients
1 cup of olive oil
½ cup of lemon juice
½ tsp oregano
½ tsp sea salt
Ground fresh pepper
1 tsp water
Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix well with a fork. Then put it in a small jar and in the fridge.
Shake well before using as the oil separates when it rests. Use it on grilled fish, chicken, or meat!
