Fish salad with olives – a different fish product, but with Greek origins

As a Greek origin product, the fish salad with olives makes a great lunch alternative for any season, be it fall or summer. Although people from the Danube area were not that keen on preparing it, young maidens wanting to impress the lads thought of it as a low-calorie culinary treat.

The dish plating is particular, fish salad being served inside grapefruit halves, decorated with parsley, olives thrown on top and several drops of lemon juice poured above it all.
