Greek Style Broiled Eel With Oil and Lemon

Written by in , Comments Off on Greek Style Broiled Eel With Oil and Lemon

This dish is something that Greeks tend to cook whenever fresh eel becomes available. If you don’t have eel, you can broil any seafood that you can find and prepare it the same way. Have the fishmonger clean the eel for you don’t want to do it yourself. As a variation, you can grill the eel instead of boiling it.

Broiled Eel Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 medium eel, cleaned and skinned
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Greek olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 recipe ladolemono
  • 1 tablespoon fresh, chopped parsley

Directions to Prepare Greek Boiled Eel:

Skin and clean the eel if the fishmonger hasn’t done it for you. Cut the eel into pieces or slice it in half. Sprinkle the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper and let it stand for fifteen minutes. Broil the fish in the oven for about fifteen minutes or until it is cooked all the way through.

Prepare the ladolemono as directed in the recipe. Arrange the eel pieces on a serving platter and pour the ladolemono over it. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve immediately.
