Things to know about Skordalia Recipe

This simple dip has two main components for its iconic flavor. In Greek, the word “Skordo” means garlic hence the name Skordalia. This dip is a staple on Greek National Independence Day, served with batter-fried salted cod.

Traditionally Skordalia is made from stale bread that is soaked in water instead of potatoes. It is made in a pestle where all the garlic is smashed, and then the ingredients are all combined in the same pestle until they are smooth.

This simple yet flavorful dip is a great addition to any meze platter or paired with beer-fried salted cod.

Cooking tip for making Skordalia

  • If the water boils, the potatoes will crumble.
  • The potatoes should be hot when blending the Skordalia. Otherwise, the dip will be lumpy and not smooth. You can mash the potatoes by hand and whisk the rest of the ingredients in.
  • You can use as much garlic as you want, depending on your preference.
