Key Points

  • Pam prefers to use vegetable oil for the taramosalata because it has a mild flavour. You can use extra virgin olive oil, however the taramosalata will have a stronger flavour and will have a salmon hue rather than pale pink colour
  • The bread can be fresh or up to 2-3 days old
  • You can add more bread for a thicker texture, more soda water for a lighter, fluffier texture and/or more lemon juice for extra zing… it’s up to you!
