Notes

My family loves this Greek dish. If you love lemon and garlic you will love this. Everyone that has tried it gives it 5 stars. So Yummy!!This is one of the easiest recipes to make, and one of the most tempting to eat.

Adjust the garlic down if it's not a favorite, and the classic tastes of lemon and oregano will still make this dish uniquely Greek.
