SKORTHALIA (SKORDALIA): GREEK GARLIC DIP AND SAUCE



Skorthalia (Skordalia): Greek Garlic Dip and Sauce image

There are several variations of skorthalia (skordalia), but they all produce a garlicky dip that goes wonderfully with fried cod, burgers, and more.

Provided by Nancy Gaifyllia

Categories     Appetizer     Sauce

Time 30m

Number Of Ingredients 6

1 tablespoon salt
1 1/2 pounds potatoes for boiling
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 to 12 cloves of garlic (minced or grated, to taste)
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup good quality red or white wine vinegar

Steps:

  • Add the salt to a large pot of water. Peel the potatoes and boil in the salted water until well done and are easily pierced with a fork. Place in a colander to drain.
  • Return the potatoes to the pot and sprinkle with pepper and mash to combine.
  • In the blender bowl of a food processor (or with a hand mixer ), puree the potatoes and garlic until well mixed, about 30 to 45 seconds. Still pureeing, slowly add the olive oil and vinegar, alternating between them, tasting as you go, until the mixture is smooth. Skorthalia should be creamy and thick. If it gets too thick, add a little cold water (but not more than 1/4 cup).
  • Skordalia is a matter of taste, some prefer a mild garlic taste, while others prefer a strong garlic taste. If the taste is too strong, increase the number of potatoes a bit. If the taste is not strong enough, increase the garlic.

  • To prepare this skordalia recipe, start by washing thoroughly the potatoes. Peel the potatoes and place them in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Lower the heat to a gentle simmer and cook for about 30 minutes. (For this skordalia recipe the potatoes need to boil, until very tender.) Drain them in a colander and keep 1/2 a cup of the boiling water.
  • In a food processor add 1/2 a cup of the boiling water, the garlic, red wine vinegar and season with salt. Blend until the garlic is diluted. Cut the potatoes in pieces, add them in the food processor and blend to combine. Pour in the olive oil a little bit at a time, whilst blending, like making mayonnaise. Blend until the oil is incorporated and the mixture is smooth and creamy. If you like your skordalia to have a mild garlicky taste, a little trick is to boil the garlic (peeled) in some milk for about 5 minutes, before using.
  • When making a skordalia recipe, it is essential, that the potatoes are hot. If the potatoes are cold, then it will be difficult to combine the ingredients and the skordalia will become lumpy.
  • If you don’t have a food processor to prepare this skordalia recipe, you can mash the potatoes with a fork and combine the ingredients, using a whisk.
