How to cook Dodoni Sah-ghah-nah-kee?
Everybody loves to order saganaki, pronounced sah-ghah-nah-kee, when they go out to a Greek restaurant. Saganaki refers to the Greek dish where you fry the cheese and serve as an appetizer.
Dodoni Saganaki cheese is actually a highly regarded table cheese in Greece, called Kefalograviera . Not only is it great to fry, but you can also grate it over your pasta or serve any way you like.
It's so easy to make your own saganaki at home, and as always, there will never be enough to go around.
- Moisten each slice with cold water and dredge it in the flour. Shake off any excess flour.
- Heat about 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat in a small heavy-bottomed frying pan.
- Sear each cheese slice in the heated oil until it's golden brown, flipping the slice midway through to brown both sides evenly.
- Serve hot with a last-minute squeeze of lemon juice.
- As a variation, you can dip the cheese in beaten egg, rather than water and flour, especially when you are making the honey and sesame version as described in the Souvlaki for the Soul recipe below.
