Taramosalata (Tαραμοσαλάτα)2 comments Jun 10th, 2009 | By Tobias | Category: Dips, Fish, Recipes, Starters
The Taramosalata is, besides the Tsatziki, the most classical Greek Mezze. Interestingly enough you can find this dish as well in Turky a lot. This salad is mainly made out of fish roe from cod or carp, Onion and Olive Oil. Potatoes or bread are sometimes added to the dip. Taramosalata is eaten with bread but also often served with vegetables to dip into.
Preparation time: 6 minutes
Very simple recipe
- 200 gram Taramas
- 250 ml olive oil
- juice of a lemon
- some lemon zest
- some bread
- fresh pepper
It is best if you use your food processor for the whole process.
Chop the onion finely. Add the Taramas and the Lemon and blend with the lemon. Slowly add the oil while blending the mixture.
A creamy mixture will come out that has the texture of mayonnaise. In the end I am adding a bit bread that got soaked in water and blend that as well.
Season with some pepper. Salt is not needed as the fish roe is salty in itself.
