When we lived in Massachusetts we got spoiled by the easy access to fresh, high-quality fish. After all, we lived in one of the busiest fishing ports in the country! But just because we live inland now doesn’t mean that we can’t still satisfy our craving for delicious seafood. Whether you have access to fish fresh off the dock or fillets from your grocer’s freezer section, this recipe produces mouthwatering results in a matter of minutes. Just remember that if your fish is frozen, you’ll need to remove it from any vacuum-sealed packaging before you defrost it. It can be thawed on a plate in the fridge overnight or in a bowl of cool water. If you use the latter method, just be sure to keep an eye on it so it isn’t out too long before cooking.

We love Mediterranean food and Greek salad is one of our favorite dishes. It is just so colorful, delicious and flavorful, it makes eating a plate full of healthy goodness easy to do, even for those who normally don’t like to eat vegetables. Many Greek salads are made with lettuce, but by replacing the leafy greens with more substantial peppers, this dish has a longer shelf life and lasts for several days in the fridge, making it a great choice to pack in lunches for work, school, or even a family picnic. We hope you try this dish enjoy it just as much as we do!
