Taramasalata

Taramasalata is a Greek meze that takes its name from the Greek name for salted cod roe - tarama. This recipe uses mashed potato but there are variations using bread soaked in water. The colour of this dip can vary from beige to pink depending on the roe (commercial taramasalata is often coloured pink).
