  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a small jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper. Seal, and shake until well blended. Use to brush onto chicken or fish when cooking, and set aside some for serving with the meal. Shake or stir before using, as the oil will separate.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Great recipe. Quick, simple, and really flavourful. Added a bunch of chopped garlic, poured it over chicken breasts, and baked it, covered, for about 25 mins. :)

I made this to go with some grilled chicken, forgot about it, but ended up using it as a salad dressing. Worked wonderfully with some mild creamy goat's cheese. Would be good with a little snipp...

It is a simple yet versatile and great tasting marinade that can be used on a variety of meat and seafood products. Very traditionally Greek. Like my dad used to make!

Ooooh, this was good on salmon. I used it in a foil packet instead of basting, with extra reserved on the side for dipping. Tasty stuff. I can see how this would also be good as a salad dress...

I used the juice of limes and two or three cloves of garlic crushed. I let it set for a couple of hours to blend the flavors and then used this with glass noodles, vegetables and shrimp. It wa...
