Shad Roe and Weekend Specialties 2.25.16 February 24 2016 Posted in

Spring is finally in the air!  While it’s still quite cold in some parts of the US and its still February, Shad have begun their annual migration up the coast and into rivers along the eastern seaboard where they conduct their yearly spawn.  While their fillets have a delicious, oily, rich flavor, their best known for their roe, which some aficionados liken to the “Foie Gras of the Sea.”  Lucky for you we have a small shipment coming in this Friday.  Shad roe are prefect pan fried in butter and lemon like in this recipe for pan-fried shad roe.
