SOFT ROES ON TOAST
Perfect for breakfast, light lunch, high tea or as a savory with a glass of port. A rich buttery treat.
Soft roes are in fact herring semen, so when filleting a herring for pickling save the soft roes, which are the white creamy sacs, not the granular orange sacs. Otherwise, your fishmonger is bound to have some. Enquire about fresh, although they do freeze very well as long as they are treated properly once defrosted; they need to be handled gently, otherwise they can end up as a creamy mess.
