Saganaki, despite sounding vaguely Japanese, is the traditional Greek name for a snack or entrée of grilled or fried cheese (fetta, kasseri, haloumi or kefalograviera), which is then sprinkled with lemon juice and eaten with bread. It has evolved, however, into a descriptive culinary term for any dish that uses cooked cheese as one of the main ingredients, such as the saganaki prawns found here and on many restaurant menus.
