How to Use Greek Seasoning
There are lots of different ways to use Greek seasoning in cooking. Here are some ideas:
Lamb: Marinade lamb chops or a leg of lamb in a mixture of olive oil, red wine, lemon juice, and your homemade Greek seasoning. Grill or roast the lamb and serve whole or slice to make souvlaki.
Chicken: Rub chicken leg quarters with olive oil and Greek seasoning, then top with lemon slices and roast on a sheet pan for a super savory entree.
Beef: Marinade beef steak cubes in a combination of olive oil, red wine vinegar, and your Greek spice blend to give tons of flavor to grilled beef kebabs.
Fish: Greek seasoning pairs perfectly with varieties of white fish like tilapia, halibut, and cod. It's also great on salmon. Try sprinkling the seasoning over fish fillets, then top with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, and capers for an extra kick of flavor.
Veggies: For an easy and flavorful side dish, toss chopped veggies with olive oil, lemon, and a good sprinkle of Greek seasoning, then roast on a sheet pan in your oven.
Yogurt: Stir your Greek spices into full fat plain Greek yogurt to make a keto-friendly Greek dip. Serve with sliced fresh veggies like cucumber, celery, and bell pepper for a healthy and fun snack.
