We love fish recipes and most of them I keep rather simple. Fresh fish is wonderful seasoned with only salt, pepper and oregano and then grilled or broiled.  It is then served with «ladolemono» sauce. Grilled Lavraki (sea bass)  Fish is very healthy, so I try to make it for dinner at least once a […]
