The short cod roe season is now here so for the next month or so, for those of us who love the taste and texture (which is the bit that turns the kids off it) LETS EAT!!!
There are a few different ways to enjoy it poached, fried or smoked. My favourite is to gently poached it in some water flavoured with lemon juice and rind and a little salt and pepper and allowed to cool in the liquid. Then carefully peel off the membrane and slice and fry in some butter and oil with a couple of fresh duck eggs for breakfast.
I have also smoked it and eaten it cold.
