3 Q&A about Roe Spread (+ an Easy Recipe)

  1. How do professionals extract the hard roe?
We all know roe is the internal or external egg masses of a certain fish, right? Its extraction process, though, is a very delicate work! The most important thing is to not kill the fish as in this case it tends to give out a bitter secretion, which ruins the whole taste. But how it’s done? The fish is put to sleep with a slight hit behind its head and within the next 10 minutes the roe is removed.

People say that roe is the most nutritional fish delicacy. It contains only 270 calories/100g. In the same amount of hard roe there are 25.3g proteins, 17g fats, 4g sugar, 440g cholesterol. The appetizer is also rich in sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium and vitamins A, B2, B44, B12, C, D.
