Dinner

Grilled trout with oven baked potatoes

November 9, 2014

(dinner for two)

You’ll need:

  • 2 medium sized fresh trouts
  • olive oilbaked potatoes with grilled trout
  • sea salt
  • 4 slices of lemon
  • 8 potatoes (or more)
  • a spoon full of olive oil
  • rosemary
  • cayenne pepper
  • salt and black pepper

How to:

Wash the trouts well (outside and inside), then use a sharp knife to carv the surface with not too deep paralel lines (about 1 centimeter space between them).

Sprinkle the trouts with a bit of olive oil on both sides and rub them well with sea salt.

Put two slices of lemon inside each trout. They will taste even better!

Grill them on both sides until well done and crispy.

Clean and peal the potatoes and carv them similarly to the fish. Don’t carv in too deep, or the potato will break.

Place the potatoes in a baking pan.

Sprinkle the potatoes with olive oil. Add salt, pepper, some cayenne pepper and rosemary.

Bake the potatoes in the oven for aproximately 30 minutes. In order for the potatoes not to get too dry, use a spoon to take some of the oil and herbs from the baking pan and sprinkle over the potatoes. (you need to do this 2 or 3 times).

The potatoes are done when golden and crispy.

Eet smakelijk!

 

Dinner

Greek style chicken skewers with tzatziki

November 2, 2014
Greek chicken skewers

(meal for 2)

You’ll need:

For the skewers:

  • 300 g chicken breast
  • the juice of one lemon
  • a spoon of olive oil
  • a teaspoon of dried oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 wooden skewers
  • 8 medium potatoes (cleaned and cut, ready to fry)
  • olive oil

For the tzatziki:

  • 1 medium cucumber or 1/2 of a big oneTzatziki
  • 5 spoons of Greek yoghurt (or any other non-sweet type of thick yoghurt)
  • 4 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 2 teaspoons of white wine vinegar
  • salt

 

How to:

Cut the chicken into pieces (big enough to place on the skewers, but small enough to grill fast).

Marinate it in a bowl together with the lemon juice, the olive oil, oregano and salt and pepper. Leave to rest for at least 15 minutes so that the meat can catch all of these aromas inside.

In the meantime you can prepare the tzatziki.

Grate the cucumber as small as possible and then squeeze the juice out of it.

Add the yoghurt, the crushed garlic, salt, pepper, and the vinegar. Taste and adjust it as you like.

Prepare the fries in olive oil….you know how!

And half the way, heat the grilling pan and grill the chicken skewers on all sides until well done.

Καλή όρεξη! (Kalí óreksi!)
