Xifias Souvlaki





 

Xifias souvlaki is a popular dish amongst tourists. Swordfish steaks are cubed into bite-sized pieces then skewered on a stick to create a souvlaki. Typically there will be other things interspersed between the fish. Depending on the chef, you might find cherry tomatoes, lemon pieces, or pepper. There is usually a bay leaf between each fish piece, which adds a delicious dimension to the souvlakiís taste.

 

The best xifias souvlaki are cooked over an open charcoal grill, and are usually served with rice or chips. For many tourists, a plate of xifias souvlaki will be one of the gastronomic highlights of their holiday in Crete. Highly recommended!
