Loukaniko

Loukaniko Lemonato

Loukaniko (Greek: λουκάνικο) is a type of Greek sausage typically flavored with orange peel, fennel seed, and various other dried herbs and seeds, and sometimes smoked over aromatic woods. They are also often flavoured with greens, especially leeks.[1]

Loukaniko is often served as a mezze, sliced and fried, sometimes with saganaki. It is also cooked into a variety of dishes.

The name 'loukaniko' is derived from ancient Roman cuisine's lucanica[2][1] (from Lucania regiono of Southern Italy) and has been used in Greek since at least the 4th century.[3]
