Oregano is the key ingredient in the Mediterranean cuisine.
Can you imagine a Greek salad without oregano ? It appears in almost all Greek recipes particularly those which include meat and fish .
Try stuffing a clean and gutted fish with sprigs of fresh oregano and then either grill or bake it in the oven. The flavour is intense, spicy and slightly bitter. Oregano has a resistance to cooking and maintains its nutritional value and flavour.
It is harvested by hand between June and September and dried outdoors in the shade and is considered the emblem of Greek Cuisine.
