READY IN: 45mins




  • In blender or food processor fitted with steel blades, place carp-roe caviar and cold water.
  • Blend briefly.
  • Add breadcrumbs and lemon juice and blend briefly again.
  • Trickle in oil very slowly while blending.
  • When mixture is thick and oil is used up, add onion, garlic and dill and blend until smooth.
  • Adjust seasoning, seeing if it needs some salt and add pepper to taste.
  • Set aside.
  • Steam snow peas about 3 minutes, until they puff up and turn bright green.
  • Drain and run under cold water.
  • When cool enough to handle, trim off stem end and strings.
  • This will open peas.
  • Fill a pastry tube with the taramosalata (the carp-roe spread) and pipe in about ½ to 1 tablespoon of it into each pea pod.
  • Chill 1 hour.
  • Serve cold.
