Saganaki is the name for dishes fried in a utensil of that name. Actually, saganaki is a small pan with two handles for use in cooking with gas. The saganaki dish is an appetizer within the Greek cuisine.
We can prepare saganaki with a variety of cheeses, the most common being kefalotiri, feta, graviera and Cypriot halloumi, but it can be enhanced with the addition of other ingredients, such as shrimps or mussels or “flambé” style, as often witnessed in Greek restaurants overseas to the delight of their guests.
Lemon is usually added after frying. This meze accompanies ouzo and all kinds of alcoholic beverages.
