Tastiest Dishes from Greece

F&W’s Grace Parisi rethinks the Greek classics, like a juicy pork souvlaki that she cooks in a grill pan—no skewers required.

Pork Souvlaki with Tzatziki

Pork Souvlaki with Tzatziki

Instead of threading the meat onto skewers, Grace simply cooks it (with onions) in a grill pan until it’s nicely charred, then serves it with store-bought pita and a garlicky cucumber-yogurt sauce called tzatziki.

Shrimp Saganaki

Shrimp Saganaki

For shrimp saganaki, Greeks sauté shrimp in a pan with tomatoes, olives and feta cheese, then serve it right out of the skillet with bread to soak up all the delicious juices. Grace stirs fresh dill into her quick version to brighten the flavor.

Avgolemono Chicken Soup with Rice

Avgolemono Chicken Soup with Rice

Avgolemono is a classic sauce of chicken broth, egg yolks and lemon juice; the addition of a bit more chicken broth, rice and shredded chicken turns it into a satisfying soup.

Greek Baked Pasta

Greek Baked Pasta

The moist and fragrant casserole pastitsio combines béchamel (a sauce of butter, flour and milk), pasta, ground lamb, tomato sauce, cheese, cinnamon and nutmeg. Instead of béchamel, Grace stirs a ricotta mixture into the pasta before baking it.

Spanakopita

Spanakopita, a staple of Greek diners all over the U.S., is a spinach pie with a crackly phyllo crust. Grace makes her spanakopita filling with all the traditional ingredients—spinach, feta, nutmeg, onion—but rolls it inside a sheet of phyllo dough to make it easy to slice and serve.
