      Its a Greek meze made from tarama, the salted and cured roe of the cod, carp, or grey mullet (bottarga) mixed with olive oil, lemon juice, and a starchy base of bread or potatoes, or sometimes almonds.

      A meze is a selection of small dishes served to accompany drinks in the Near East, the Balkans, and parts of Central Asia.
