Kokkari Dressing

Whole Fish
Sara Remington


  • 6 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons  fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons  capers, rinsed and minced
  • 2 teaspoons  minced shallot
  • 1 teaspoon  minced garlic
  • 1  teaspoon  fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon  chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon  dried wild Greek oregano, crumbled
  •   Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


We put this dressing in a squeeze bottle and drizzle it on virtually everything that comes off the restaurant’s spit or grill: dry-aged rib-eye steak, lamb chops, chicken, whole fish, shellfish, even grilled vegetables. The capers, garlic, oregano, and lemon impart an instantly recognizable Greek taste. To keep the dressing fresh and vibrant, we combine all the ingredients except for the lemon juice in the morning. Then, in small batches as needed throughout the day, we whisk in the lemon juice. You can do the same at home if you need to prepare the dressing ahead.


In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, capers, shallot, garlic, parsley, and fresh oregano. Add the dried oregano and whisk in salt and pepper to taste.
