    I'd never thought about making this but it's easy and tasty...of course! Its good to serve in all those classic dip situations but I also like it on sandwiches or rolls with avocado and lettuce.

    Queensland, Australia

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 100g smoked cod's roe (or any roe will do)
    • 2 thick slices stale (preferably white) bread, crusts cut off
    • enough milk to soak the bread in (about 1/2 cup)
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) olive oil (more if needed)
    • 3 tablespoons lemon juice (more if needed)
    • 1 garlic clove, crushed
    • freshly ground black pepper

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

    1. Soak the bread in the milk (or you can use water) for a couple of minutes or till it's a little soft, then squeeze the liquid out.
    2. Put the bread and the roe in a blender and blend together, then trickle in the olive oil.
    3. Add the lemon juice in the same way- checking the taste when you've added half, to get a sense of how much more lemon juice you want. Keep adding till you like the taste.
    4. Spoon the taramasalata into a bowl, cover with cling film and chill in the fridge until ready to serve. Garnish with a lemon wedge and sprigs of parsley.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Start with half the lemon and oil and one more piece of bread then work up from there. - 16 Dec 2009
