Fish roe dip is a delicacy that most people in Greece remember on Clean Monday (The beginning of 40 days of fasting before Easter) and generally whoever fasts remembers fish roe dip.
I personally love all dips/sauces/spreads but the truth with roe fish dip is that it is pretty unique in flavor. So there aren’t many things to do with this dip besides diving in with freshly baked bread. As with all spreads all I need is a spoon and I am fine.
This dip can be made with bread or potatoes. I personally use both because I think that it tastes better and has a finer texture. Have you ever tried fish rye dip?
Since there’s only 10 days until Easter and everybody is fasting i thought it would be appropriate enough to share this recipe with you!
Happy Easter my friends!
