• 100 grams of carp roe
  • 1 cup of olive oil
  • 3 slices of bread without crust
  • 2 lemons (squash them to take the juice)
  • some warm water
Taramas is another very easy Greek recipe of a salad. The only difficult thing is to find carp roe.

Greeks eat it in Kathara Devtera a lot. It is really good combined on bread while eating legumes.

Some olives and white cheese and there you go!

Naturally it is pink, but I’ve met it brown, orange or white. Try to get it pink.

Its preparation takes no more than 5 minutes (or 10).


Wet the bread and squeeze it dry. Blend everything except oil and lemon juice.

After the first blending is over add oil and lemon juice (slowly) and continue blending. If it is too solid add some warm water to make it viscous.

It must be like a cream (like yogurt) but with other color.

Add any salt if you like, after you taste it.
