A variation of the basic Greek salad is to make lemon garlic baked drumsticks, though the flavors are a bit different. Lemon is used in this dish to replace any flavor that may be missing from your original recipe, and garlic is used to add texture to the beef.
Since it’s a meat dish, you can use whatever spices you like to add to the recipe. If you aren’t afraid to use flavorings in the traditional recipe, try adding some diced celery or green onion as well.
How to Make Lemon Garlic Baked Drumsticks
You can use both of these ingredients for their original flavor, or throw them in the skillet with the rest of the ingredients. Make sure you add the celery/green onion once the garlic has cooked off the heat, as you won’t have time to cook them down when the dish is done cooking.
To keep the texture and flavor of the drumsticks, soak them in milk or water overnight. This helps to tenderize the meat without taking it out of the marinade. When they’re time to cook, take the oil out of the marinade and return it to the pot where the marinade is located.
Heat the oil over medium high, then add the fish, and the zest of one lemon and half the juice from the other lemon. Fry until the fish has been just barely cooked through but not burned, about five minutes.
In order to maintain the texture of the baked drumsticks, cook the garlic, celery, and green onions on the side, or reserve them to be added at the end. Once the drumsticks are finished cooking, top them with the creamy ranch dressing, if you wish. Serve, and enjoy!
