Thracian “Skordalia” – a traditional garlic pesto

garlic paste | calypsotree recipes

This one is a great summer dip to excite your taste buds. An easy recipe, made exactly the way our grandmothers used to do, with plenty of walnuts, tasty and very healthy!

Ingredients:

1.5 cups walnuts

2 table spoons vinegar

5 table spoons Calypso Extra Virgin Olive Oil

½ teaspoon Fleur de Sel (salt)

2 slices of moistened bread

2-3 clovers of garlic

Preparation:

Crush the walnuts coarsely, using a mortar and pestle; Blend the walnuts in a food processor, together with the garlic (crushed) and bread; Add the olive oil, salt and vinegar (adjust according to your preference). The garlic pesto “skordalia” is ready!

This dip goes perfectly with fried battered fish -especially cod (Gadus morhua) and thornback ray (Raja clavata)- or fried vegetables like eggplants, zucchinis and peppers. Enjoy them with a chilled glass of grape distillates like ouzo, raki or tsipouro.
