Moussakas (Greek Eggplant Casserole)

In Greek cuisine, moussakas (moussaka, musakka) is a layered casserole made of vegetables (eggplant as a main ingredient) and minced meat.

It takes a bit of time and require some coordination in order to make it. But even if you spend a lot of time preparing moussakas, it totally worth it! It is great dish, and it tastes good served as hot as well as cold.

Tzatziki is good addition for Moussakas Casserole.

Pan Fried Cod (Fried Fish)

I’ve prepared the pan fried cod for this photo recipe, but you can cook pretty much fresh fish of any kind in the same way. Just make sure you scale fish before (if it has scales) and cut into portion pieces suitable for frying.

I like to serve fried fish with Potato Puree, but you may find some other side dish for it.

Fried Broccoli Side Dish

You may want to try frying broccoli in eggs and flour if you find taste of boiled ones not that exciting. It is not much harder to prepare but it has more rich taste.

Amount of eggs and flour will depend on size of broccoli crowns, so numbers I’ve listed are approximate.

In this recipe plain flour can be replaced with bread crumbs or a mix of bread crumbs and parmesan cheese if you are adventurous.

Serve fried broccoli as a side dish or an appetizer.
