Savore or savoro is a sauce made with olive oil, vinegar, garlic, flour and rosemary. Invented at a time when refrigeration did not exist, it enabled housewives to preserve fish for roughly one week.

Savore sauce is used to season and preserve fish fried the previous day. In its traditional mode, vinegar rather than wine is used. The sauce was typical in the islands of the Ionian sea that were occupied by the Venetians and was heavily influenced by them.

In the Greek cuisine, it accompanies fish, liver, snails boubouristi, and zucchini, as well as other fried vegetables.
