Fried Cheese: Saganaki
- 1/2 pound kasseri cheese, sliced 1/2-inch thick (use feta as alternative)
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Freshly ground pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley leaves
- Lemon wedges, for garnish
Dredge the cheese slices in flour, tap off any excess. Chill while oil heats.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over high heat, add the cheese slices and saute until golden brown on all sides, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Keep warm in oven while finishing next batches. Transfer cheese to platter, season with pepper, sprinkle with parsley, and finish with squeeze of lemon.
