Good question. I dunno. It's just from the supermarket, that very fine pale stuff that is normally smoked.

smoke it, though some just fry it as is.

Just to add smoked roe seems to be less popular these days, I took about half a pound of beautiful freshly smoked snapper roe into my old workplace not one of about a dozen people were interested, most younger ones were incredulous that anyone actually could eat that stuff.

Couldn't give it away, on the North shore.

I feed it to my chooks - they LOVE it - and make lots of eggs - much bigger than the fish eggs :)

I think we're going to hot smoke/ sear it over charcoals tomorrow night. It's currently curing.
There was heaps, so the animals got a treat tonight, too.

I'd love to get chickens again, but I don't trust our dog.

I love smoked roe, although I haven't yet smoked it at home. I would start by salting the roe for a couple of hours, then rinse and hot-smoke for about ten minutes or until just cooked through.

ooooooh. Wove together a whole bunch of leek tops into a mat. Going to smoke the fish on that! Exciting! :D
