There is something fresh and lively about the tastes of the med. The flavours of herbs and citrus seem to call up the idea of the ocean breeze, and a warm sun. Bright blue waters and white sands come to mind, when I cook with Mediterranean flavours.
I am originally from a Mediterranean country so these flavours are close to home. Bright salads, grilled fish or chicken, spices and herbs combined in just the right way so that you end up with a light happy dish instead of a warm, heavy one.
The Sleekgeek competition inspired my recipe. The ingredients and method of cooking was very precise and I am so not used to it but I had fun doing it. Although I didn’t win the competition, I did win a delicious dish to add to my collection.
There are small changes I would make from the original recipe and I will note them in the instructions. I will leave them in their original form too. That way those who would like something tasty and low-cal, can go ahead and have just that.
