Delicious Mediterranean savoury dip – watch me make it on You Tube
In Athens years ago, they mixed taramasalata with mashed potato to make it go further.
If you can’t see, weighing on talking scales can be easiest and cuts down on washing up and other equipment: half a pint of oil weighs 8 ounces
To prevent the taste of the oil being too strong, I used half sunflower and half olive oil.
Smoked cod’s roe can be difficult to find depending on the season. I ordered from my local fishmonger (http://www.leefishdeli.co.uk/contact) and it arrived within a couple of days.
Cod’s roe come in pairs – each is about 8 ounces weight so you could use one with half the ingredients and freeze the rest for another day.
Smoked cod’s roe is not cheap but this mix made nearly 3 lbs weight at a cost very close to the supermarket version and, hopefully, better in terms of taste, texture and no other added ingredients.
