There are always recipes that can be labelled as “traditional” and there are others that can be labelled as more “modern”. Those that can be named as traditional are ones which ussualy come from generation to generation and they were introduced to me my from my mother and my relatives.
Some others though come up naturally when you try to mix up things when it’s Sunday on your home and have some time to be creative. So how can you be creative in cooking?Well, fish is one place to start with.
Sometimes i understand that the recipes that i write over here in the blog are not exactly…”Greek” but they are part of this cooking trip that i have in the past few years. Additionally they are cooked by a Greek so there is a little bit of truth in the term “Greek recipes”.
Anyway, the following is something that i tried after getting some scallops from the famous Billinsgate fish market that exists in London.
Loved Octopus. Always and forever! On a Red sauce is even better though!
One of the best things in cooking is the fact that the element of “creation” exists in such a huge percentage. It doesn’t need to be something special that you are cooking but the fact that you are doing in your own personal way and you combine ingredients can have a great result.
The following dish isn’t something special in terms of relevance to Greece but it has all the elements that make love cooking. It has a variety of ingredients, it has fish (which i love), it is to cook and it looks great on the dish…which is important as it increases your appetite!
Always great to find new combinations to cook a fish… never thought ever i would cook one with beetroots.
