Print Recipe



  • 660 g pork liver fresh
  • 1 tsp sea salt kosher
  • 1 tsp ground pepper freshly ground
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp Greek yoghurt full fat
  • ½ tsp sea salt kosher
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper freshly ground
  • ½ tsp sweet paprika powder
  • 3 tbsp warm water
  • 100 ml sunflower oil


  • Slice the livers into the same thickness pieces at least 1 cm / 0.4 inch thick and remove if certain pieces of the digestive tract or other organs are attached.
  • Put the slices of liver in a bowl, pour a cup of milk on them and let them soak for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Take out the liver slices from the milk and dry them well on a kitchen towel.
  • Season the liver only with freshly ground black pepper without adding sea salt.
  • In a non-stick pan, heat the sunflower oil at medium temperature and then fry the liver slices only a minute or two on each side until it acquires a copper colour.
  • Take them out in a bowl and now season them with sea salt.
  • Crush the garlic cloves in a bowl, season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix it with a tablespoon of oil, poured little by little like from mayonnaise, until you get a softer paste
  • Add the Greek yoghurt, the sweet paprika and mix further. Thin it with 2-3 tablespoons of water.


I recommend using pork or beef liver in this recipe, they are the most suitable.
If you want you can stop soaking the liver in milk.
