Impressive but surprisingly easy dishes to make
Ok, I've got bored of seeing giant brain-like slabs of this at the local fish shop. What's it for?
It's actually really yummy and dead cheap. Roll in flour and 'pan fry'
Mmmmmmm it's lovely!
Ew!!! It's gross, that's what it is. My step dad loves the stuff. Fries it up - it stinks the house out for days. Barf!
also really good with egg.
i am planning on making fish cakes with some i have in the freezer.
its fish eggs..baby fishes..ohh
Ooh I could live on cod roe!! Either from the chip shop or straight from the tin!
Oh, so you cook it like fish?
It looks gross.
Is this a particularly 'english' thing to eat? Like jellied eels? <shudder>
I guess you can just heat it through in the frying pan. It comes battered from the chip shop, but is also nice just cold from the tin.
Ah, see, our fish place has giant slabs of it, alongside the other (smoked?) fish. It's white. Dunno if it's cooked.
Ok, the idea of tinned cod roe has me feeling a little green around the gills tbh.
DH is so not actually English, is he - he thought you could use it to make taramasalata. (Could you?)
can't see why not. taramasalata is roe.
no, it isn't particularly english, caviar anyone?
i think they do use it to make taramasalata but they put colouring to make it pink.
I did a search on taramasalata, and it needs smoked cod roe. No idea if this stuff is smoked.
Yeah, the pinkness is definately dye, though - proper taramasalata isn't very pink at all.
<<<the wiggins>>> <-----what this thread just gave me
