 Ingredients List

  • 6 sm Fresh globe artichokes
  • 1 1/2 oz Tarama; rinsed if necessary
  • -=OR=-
  • 2 oz -Smoked skinned cod's roe
  • 1 tb Finely grated onion pulp
  • 2 lg Juicy lemons
  • 1 c Fruity olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground white pepper


To clean the artichokes, cut off the stems flush with the base, remove any
tough, unsightly outer leaves and cut off the top one-third of the flower
bud itself. Force the leaves open a little, and rinse under cold water,
with a squeeze of lemon or a splash of vinegar to prevent discoloring.

Place the artichokes upside-down in a pot large enough to hold them all in
one layer and pour in boiling water to come one-fourth of the way up the
sides. Salt and simmer 15-40 minutes, depending on their age and size -
until the heart is just tender when pricked with a fork. Drain and refresh
them under cold water; drain again and chill.

Beat the tarama or smoked cod's roe with the grated onion. You can do this
easily in a food processor. Finely grate the zest of one lemon and beat in,
with 2 teaspoons boiling water.

Squeeze the juice of both lemons. Alternately dribble in lemon juice and
olive oil, beating each addition in before adding the next, as though
making mayonnaise - it may not need all the oil. If you are doing this by
hand, it take perseverence and elbow grease to make it nice and light.
Taste and season with pepper. Open the artichokes and remove the inner,
soft leaves and then the hairy choke. Spoon tarama into the cup of leaves.
