One of the most favorite Greek mezes in the world is saganaki! We made a delicious feta saganaki drenched in a semolina flour mix and then fried in olive oil and finished off with a ouzo honey sauce.

One of the best Greek mezes that can be made in a matter of minutes.
Ingredients: 4 slices (½ inch thick) Dodoni Feta/ Halloumi/ Graviera/ Kefalotyri, ½ cup Semolina, ½ cup, all purpose flour, Pinch of sea salt, Pinch of black pepper, Cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon, lemon thyme, 1 teaspoon oregano, 6 tablespoons of olive oil, 3 tablespoons of, Ouzo, 2 teaspoons of Honey, 2 teaspoons of unsalted butter
Prepare the feta by cutting into ½ inch thick strips. Set aside on large plate.In a bowl mix together the semolina, flour, salt, pepper,cayenne pepper,thyme, and oregano.Place 1 strip of feta into the bowl and coat the feta on both sides with flour mixture. (Repeat until all 4 strips are coated in flour)
Over medium heat add the olive oil to pan. Once pan is hot enough add feta strips and cook until golden brown one each side. Remove from heat and set aside.

Prepare ouzo honey sauce. Place ouzo in pan over medium heat then add honey and butter. Once the sauce starts to thicken remove from heat and drizzle over saganaki. Serve with a wedge of lemon and thyme sprig.
