recipe image Tagliatelle with white fish roe sauce from Lesvos


  • 500 gr. tagliatelle
  • 200 gr. white fish roe
  • 50 ml. Altis Chania Crete Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 medium onions, minced
  • 30 ml. ouzo
  • 500 ml. tomato juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 laurel leaf
  • 3 cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons dill, minced
  • 150 gr. walnut kernels
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Salt


      1. In a deep frying pan, we saute the onions in the olive oil; once they turn brown, we add the white fish roe, continue to saute for 2-3 min. and quench with the ouzo.
      2. We add the tomato juice, laurel, spices and garlic, and we let the sauce simmer for 15’ until it becomes thick.
      3. At the same time, we boil the tagliatelle in plenty of water, drain the water, sprinkle them with a little olive oil and keep them warm.
      4. We pour the sauce over the tagliatelle, sprinkle them with the walnut kernels and dill, and then serve.
      We can replace the tagliatelle with any of our favourite pasta
