Fish Plakì

Fish Plaki.JPG

As a country surrounded by sea, Greece has a very rich variety of fresh fish and seafood. Depending on the type of the fish they range from 3€ per kilo (2 pounds) to some 18€ per kilo (2 pounds). We have fish that we fry and fish that we bake. We have fish that we boil and fish that we BBQ. In future posts I will present some different varieties of fish and the ways we cook them here.

Fish in Greece and generally in the Mediterranean have a completely different taste than the corresponding ones from the ocean. Our fish are saltier and have a stronger taste than the ones coming from the Atlantic. These two characteristics determine also the way they are cooked. The most common ways to prepare them are either frying them (especially the small ones) or baking them most of the times  with salt, pepper and herbs.

Fish Plakì is among the recipes that are used throughout Greece, but not as often as the above mentioned ones. Nevertheless, fish plakì has a beautiful combination of ingredients and it bursts with flavors. It is a full meal by itself and the combination of fish and vegetables makes it very attractive and filling. Baked vegetables add a tasty depth to the simpler flavor of fish and appeals even to people who are not as eager to consume fish, such as my husband!

It is easy, quick and very tasty and can be perfectly served even during busy weekdays for lunch or dinner.

    Katerina, it looks like a quintessence of the Greek cuisine (at least the idea I have of it!): easy, simple but with fabulous taste. It reminds me of Bouyourdi which I sometimes prepare in the morning, put into the fridge and bake at night when I come back home. Thank you for this excellent idea! I’m looking forward to seeing more fish recipes.

    When my daughter visited Greece, her friend’s family served fish in so many wonderful ways that she had to finally give in and try some. Not being a fish eater, that was difficult for her but, boy oh boy is she glad she did. She still talks about it 5 years later!

    Marion and I are big time fish eaters, Katerina. I would love to make this to surprise her. I know she would love it! The addition of cinnamon and nutmeg is quite intriguing.

    Thank you so much for sharing…
