Here's a traditional recipe for Greek Taramasalata:


  • 200g fish roe (carp or cod roe)
  • 1 cup stale white bread, crust removed, soaked in water and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Optional: chopped fresh parsley or dill for garnish


1- Begin by rinsing the fish roe under cold water to remove any excess salt or impurities. Pat them dry gently with paper towels.

2- In a food processor or blender, combine the fish roe, soaked bread, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

3- With the blender or food processor running, gradually drizzle in the olive oil in a slow, steady stream until the mixture emulsifies and becomes creamy.

4- Taste the Taramasalata and season with salt and pepper according to your preference. Remember that the fish roe can be quite salty, so adjust accordingly.

5- Transfer the Taramasalata to a serving bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

6- Before serving, garnish with chopped fresh parsley or dill if desired.

7- Serve the Taramasalata chilled with warm pita bread, crusty bread, or fresh vegetables for dipping.
