Greek Oil and Lemon Sauce – Latholemono

In Greek: λαδολέμονο, pronounced lah-tho-LEH-mo-no

A classic Greek topping for grilled fish, this sauce is used in many ways to enhance the flavors of all kinds of seafoods, but if your family is like mine, you’ll find many other uses for it as well. We use it on vegetables and anywhere we want a light oil and lemon taste combination.
