Fish Roe Spread
"Taramosalata", the famous Greek fish roe spread, is considered "poor man's caviar". The secret of its success lies in mashing together the fish roe and the bread to form a paste before the lemon juice, olive oil, and onion are added. Tarama is salt-cured carp roe. The eggs are small and pale orange.

What You Need:
  • 4 tablespoons tarama
  • 8 slices white bread, crusts removed
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated onion

  • How To Cook:
    1. Place tarama in a mortar and pound it until the roe splits. Moisten bread under running water; squeeze out any excess.

    2. Add bread to tarama in the mortar and pound until they are completely blended, about 5 minutes.

    3. Put this mixture in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer or a wooden spoon, adding small amounts of olive oil alternately with lemon juice.

    4. Beat for 5 minutes. Add onion and mix well.

    5. Serve in a bowl surrounded by crackers. Keep refrigerated.

    1. Moisten bread under running water. Squeeze out any excess.

    2. Place tarama in bowl and process for 1 minute.

    3. With motor running, add bread, all the olive oil, lemon juice, and onion alternately to form a creamy mixture.

    To Make: 1½ cups
