Step 1: You will need ...

  • 200 g pressed cod roe
  • the juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 200 ml olive oil
  • 2 tbsp warm water
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 mixer with a whisk attachment
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 fork
  • 1 spoon

Step 2: Whisk the roe

Spoon the roe into a bowl. Mash it with a fork to break it up. Place it into the mixer, and add in the egg yolk, lemon juice and garlic. Whisk on high speed to combine. Still whisking, slowly begin to pour in the olive oil, little by little. Make sure that every batch is thoroughly incorporated before adding in the next. Keep adding the oil, until the mixture forms a smooth, mousse like texture. Add in a little water and allow it to combine.

Step 3: Garnish and serve

Spoon the taramasalata into a small canapé dish. Garnish with the chopped parsley and serve! Try it with warm pita bread and some olives. Enjoy!
