Put the spanokopita down: its time for the seaside cuisine to get a modern makeover.
This is Med, made for now: that means ditching the ol’ souvlaki-and-potatoes standards for simple, fresh ingredients that elevate old-world dishes into flavourful, healthful (and beautiful) new favourites.
Small, oily fish are a Mediterranean staple; if you want to tame their fishiness, brine fresh fish in a ratio of 1 part coarse salt, 2 parts sugar and 4 parts water for an hour or up to 24 hours, then drain and pat dry. Salmoriglio is a lemony sauce that can have the texture of a vinaigrette or something thicker, like hollandaise, and is perfect for dipping or drizzling.
Orzo salad travels well, and makes a great side or substantial lunch or dinner topped with leftover fish, grilled chicken or jammy soft-boiled eggs. Romanesco is a member of the brassica family; it looks like pale green cauliflower covered with pointy Christmas trees. If you’re a fan of fresh mint, add some along with the spinach.
Eggplant is delicious with the added smokiness a hot oven or grill imparts; it can be grilled in halves or slices, topped with simmered and marinated lentils and garlicky romesco.
Rich braised lamb shanks get a lift from green peas and fresh mint.
Om (or um) Ali is a dessert often compared to bread pudding, but is far more interesting and complex—made with broken baked puff pastry, it’s soft and creamy in the middle, almost like rice pudding, with chewy edges and crunchy bits of pastry, coconut and nuts.
