Directions

 

  1. Soak the bread: Place the slices of stale white bread in a bowl of water for a few seconds, then squeeze out the excess water.
  2. Blend the ingredients: In a food processor or blender, combine the soaked bread, tarama, minced garlic, and grated onion (if using). Blend until the mixture is well combined.
  3. Slowly add olive oil: While the food processor or blender is running, start adding the olive oil in a slow, steady stream. Continue blending until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy. If it's too thick, you can add a little water to reach your desired consistency.
  4. Add lemon juice: Gradually add the lemon juice while continuing to blend. Taste the mixture and adjust the lemon juice, salt, and pepper to your liking. Taramasalata should have a balance of lemony and salty flavors.
  5. Serve: Once you're satisfied with the taste and consistency, transfer the Taramasalata to a serving bowl. You can drizzle a bit of olive oil on top and garnish with a sprig of fresh parsley.
  6. Refrigerate: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. This allows the flavors to meld.
  7. Serve: Taramasalata is typically served as a dip with pita bread, fresh vegetables, or crackers. It's a great appetizer or meze option for a Greek-themed meal.
