300g smoked cod roe
Squeeze of lemon juice
150ml olive oil

I peeled away the skin from the roe and put 300g of roe into my food processor, added a squeeze of lemon juice and slowly started adding oil whilst blitzing. Once mixed add the creme fraiche and keep gently mixing.

For my wife I created small mini-tasters in croustades with a slice of homemade pickle.
