Pretty sure I won’t be trying this after reading Tony’s Blog. I am pretty adventurous but it doesn’t look the slightest bit appealing. Of course….I like anchovies out of the can or jar, so what do I know. 🙂
Shad Roe – A delicacy of spring.
For years I have seen this seasonal specialty at the fish counter in my grocery store. I have heard about it in restaurants and food magazines, and I am generally pretty adventurous. I love soft shell crabs, I eat and love scrapple, In fact I think the only line I have ever drawn is at Rocky Mountain Oysters out of general support for my gender.
If you’re thinking it looks like a body part of roughly half the population, I agree.
So when I saw the food that Barron’s Food Lover’s Companion describes as “…a much sought-after springtime delicacy…roe encased in two delicately transparent oval-shaped membranes…[with] a rich, slightly sweet nutty flavor” I decided it was finally time to try it.
Nearly every recipe begins with bacon and I was ready with some authentic smokey Virginia bacon.
