Greek-inspired, this is for leek and lemon lovers everywhere. A tasty, full-of-flavor side to accompany a myriad of main dishes. Complements fried and/or grilled fish to a 'T.' Can use some of the tender green parts if necessary.

My son gobbled it up! If a recipe can make a teen eat leeks, it's a keeper!

This was a very nice side dish. So simple and yet, lots of flavor. I will definitely be making this one again.
