The Taste of a Greece Sailing Adventure
A real treat when sailing around the wonderful Greek islands is getting to try all the best in Greek cuisine. And with its enviable position in the Mediterranean Sea, there are no better dishes to try than those that come from the water itself – but what are the must-try seafood dishes to look out for?
Offering a true taste of the coast, the rich yet salty taste of traditional Greek mussels should be on your wish list. Most frequently found on the northern Greek islands, these large, succulent mussels have the edge on their classic French counterparts as a result of the wonderful feta cheese and tomato sauce they are topped with – absolutely delicious!
Squid rings can be found on many a taverna menu all over the Greek islands, but there is undoubtedly one superior way to enjoy it: fried until it’s perfectly crispy on the outside and wonderfully tender on the inside. Ideal for a lazy lunch on a hot summer day, crispy squid is considered by many to be the king of all Greek dishes.
If you’re looking for a more unusual way to sample something similar to squid, then why not try octopus? Commonly eaten in Greek homes and Greek restaurants, octopus is essential to the cuisine in this area. Whether simply grilled and served with a squeeze of lemon or braised in a rich tomato and red wind sauce, this dish epitomizes everything that is wonderful about the cuisine that awaits you on a Greece sailing adventure.
