taramossalata

Definition

Food

  • A pounded mixture of tarama, or more usually, smoked cod’s roe, soft white breadcrumbs or mashed potatoes, crushed garlic, olive oil and lemon juice, used as a dip or served with bread as part of a mezze. More commercial versions, known as taramasalata in the West, are smoother and contain excessive amounts of extenders and fish flavouring, besides being a rather strange pink colour.
