  I must admit that when I first had soft roe, decades ago, if I had been aware of what they were I would not have eaten them.  eat2

I can eat any offal from an animal, liver and kidney etc.
But I'm not all that keen on fish....I heave at the smell

The only fish I ate as a boy was battered cod from the chippie.
We were very poor and I was orphaned at 14 when my father died, my mother having died when I was eleven.
No home cooked food for me and my dad, we lived on toast and jam, pies and chips

Oh Malcolm, how sad.  So very sorry.  What happened to you after you lost your Dad?  Do you have siblings?

Sorry once again, I do not mean to pry...

thanks for sharing - once again a story of adversity to success - wouldn't it be nice if we could all meet for coffee and a beer somewhere in UK I assume - or maybe spain would be better - now who do we know who lives in spain??

If I have a big win on our lottery this year and I mean big - I'll fund it!! murgs dance

I managed to get cod roe yesterday - never known it be so rare.

I boiled it, allowed it to get cold, peeled the skin off (the dog likes that), mashed it, added salt & pepper and an egg. Mixed all to a soft batter then shallow fried small cakelets. Just had them for breakfast with just a smidgen of vinegar.

Excellent!!!

I am literally allergic to cucumber and get a severe gastric reaction if I eat any. It's daft I know because in must be 99% water - but there is some compound in there that upsets my system.

If I buy a sandwich and find cucumber in it - I can't just remove it. The slightest trace left behind and I'm in trouble.

My wife loves cucumber but has to be careful with it - separate cutting board for example.


Back on topic with fish roe - I never eat it and even avoid caviar when being entertained at a "posh" party.

That sounds interesting, pops-, [without the vinegar for me though].

My prep is very basic - once boiled they would be dipped in whisked egg then breadcrumbs and gently either shallow or deep fried. 

We usually buy a good quantity when available; then once boiled and packed in suitable sized amounts, they are frozen.  That extends the season somewhat!  smile
