Serves:                                 2

Preparation Time:             20 minutes

Cook Time:                         No cook, no chill required


o   2 slices white bread, crusts removed

o   4 cloves garlic

o   1tsp onion, minced

o   8fl.oz/225ml milk

o   8oz/225g cod roe (this is what gives the dip the ‘pink’ tinge)

o   2tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

o   2tbsp fresh lemon juice

o   Olive oil (keep the oil next to the blender)

o   Pitta bread


Break the bread into smallish pieces and blitz in your blender to make the breadcrumbs.

Take a small bowl, pour in the milk and tip in the breadcrumbs to soak and soften.

Put the cod roe, garlic, onion and parsley into the blender and blend until completely smooth.

Add the soaked breadcrumbs, blend again to thoroughly combine. Slowly add the olive oil and lemon juice until you get to a smooth, dippable consistency – it should not be too thick.

Set aside whilst you toast the pitta bread. Once toasted, cut into strips and serve with the dip with some extra wedges of lemon and some more fresh parsley to garnish.
