Plaki is a way to prepare fish that it’s so delicious and easy at the same time.
A very old recipe that comes along nicely with time and it pleases even the new generation of foodies.
I always try to find new ways to make fish and somehow I overlooked this Plaki recipe, my mother’s favorite one, I love fish and sea food I can exist by having just fish, imagine…
I hope you are adventurous enough to make this recipe and if you do, please share with us your thoughts.

Brussels sprouts and the love hate relationship.Not too many people like them nevermind love them.
They take such a bad rap, and they are so healthy, packed with so much flavor and taste.
Many people want to have them because they are so cute clustered together like a giant grape and they know how good
they are, but when it comes to the taste they automatically lose interest.
Here is the way I make them and paradoxically are liked, even the pickiest eaters like them.
As you can see I don’t have many chicken recipes on my site. Growing up my mother hated chickens, she used to watch them eat when she was growing up and she said no, not for me, free range chickens eat everything …In my early teens I started having chicken and it was good…I like chicken and I will make different recipes with the bird but I have limits. I always wonder about the fascination North Americans have with chicken and it puzzles me…One thing that comes to mind, it’s not expensive and it cooks easy…Well those are very good reasons to have chicken, I guess…I prefer Lamb, Veal and Fish, am Greek after all…And if I can I will not serve chicken to my guests…
Here is a recipe I love and make quite often, we like Okra and it’s perfect for a meatless day.
We love olives, Feta cheese and nice heavy bread and the meal is complete….Okra is a wonderful vegetable but so misunderstood by many, try this recipe that uses Frozen Okra and you might change your mind.
