Recipe for Saganaki – Pan Seared Greek Cheese
Greek Pan Seared Cheese (Saganaki) Recipe Ingredients:
- 1 pound Kasseri Cheese
- 1 cup cold water
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 cup flour for coating (use gluten-free flour if following a gluten-free diet)
- 2 lemons cut into wedges
How to Make Saganaki:
Cut Cheese into half inch thick squares (about 3 inches wide).
Dip cheese into cold water to moisten, and then dip in the flour to coat.
In a heavy skillet, heat the olive oil and sear each slice until golden brown and the cheese heats through. If the pan is small use a tablespoon of fresh oil for each piece of cheese to be seared.
Saganaki is best served hot with a last minute squeeze of lemon over it.
