Directions

Mealthy Tip

Pair this simple recipe with your favorite salad or roasted veggies and some crusty bread for a complete and nutritious meal. It also tastes great served with rice pilaf or orzo! Try different herbs besides the oregano. Fresh thyme or fresh rosemary are good options. Add 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest to the marinade for extra lemony flavor.

We keep oregano in our herb garden, so this recipe was a no-brainer. It was simple enough for the boys to eat it without having to be persuaded to even try it. Lemon, oregano, and garlic just work well together.

I love that this recipe calls for fresh oregano. It's so worth hunting it down and getting that pure flavor coming thru every bite.

Paired this with a Greek-style salad, and it was really good. I added extra oregano too, which is one of my favorite ingredients. Especially on chicken.

Paired this with roasted veggies and pilaf rice. Very nice dish, love oregano and lemon, it's always a winning combo. We used an indoor grill to make these, and they were wonderful. I bet they are even more amazing on an outdoor grill.

So I took the base of this recipe and used it to make grilled fish. Served it with a creamy risotto for dinner. So good!
