    I'm just curious, if you could only save and make one single Greek dish for the rest of your life, what would that one be? Looking for some favorite recipes here.

    Barbequed lamb souvlaki skewers

    I would love to get the courage one day to try to make them, but I live with people who are very picky about garlic and only like it if it is used in a very tasty recipe, so I need to find a very good recipe before I try it.

    My family used to marinate the cubes of lamb in garlic, oregano, lemon and maybe olive oil, salt and pepper? I have no idea about the quantities they used of each ingredient per kilogram of meat, and I don't know which cuts of lamb would work well.

    So if anyone has any advice or knows a link to a good recipe, please let me know.

    This is an interesting topic, hope some more replies come up!

    Lamb skewers sounds soooooo gooooooood!!

    I just use cubed lamb leg or shoulder when making skewers.

    Try the following combination for 1kg of lamb:
    Juice of 2 lemons, (save the rind)
    4 cloves garlic
    1tbs salt.
    1 tsp pepper
    2 tbs chopped fresh mint.
    1 tsp dry oregano.
    mix well, add lamb, coat well. let marinate over night.
    Grill!

    Thank you so much for the recipe, next time I cook lamb I plan to give it a try.

    I usually only eat red meat and chicken once a fortnight each. So most days I cook vegetarian or fish.

    I make a mixture of cuisines mostly: middle eastern, indian, italian, indonesian and a few Greek dishes.

    From vegetarian Greek foods I like to make zucchini fritters, spinach and cheese pies and lemon/olive oil roasted root vegetables with feta and bread.

    Another vegetarian dish I liked was: my father used to fry capsicum, eggplant, chopped onions and slices of potato in olive oil and then coat the vegetables with fried tomato (seasoned with some dried oregano, salt and pepper). Eaten with fresh bread.

    We also used to eat fried potato chips (french fries), fried eggs, feta cheese and some fresh bread and sometimes a greek salad.

    I am planning to try making spanakorizo this week (I want to try the recipe posted in this forum with the video), I don't really remember being brave enough to try eating it as a child. But hopefully will turn out nice.

    There are a number of subcategories like salads, yogurt, dinner, lunch, etc. that one cannot stay at a single Greek recipe once he knows about variations in Greek Diet.
