So, what is roe?

Roe refers to the fully ripe eggs of fish, often found in species such as salmon, trout, and sturgeon. These small, round, and often brightly colored eggs are highly prized in many cultures for their delicate flavor and unique texture, with a slightly salty or briny taste that can vary depending on the species. Roe is typically harvested and preserved in salt or brine, and can be enjoyed raw, cooked, or smoked. It is commonly used as a garnish or topping for sushi and other Japanese dishes, as well as in spreads, dips, and sauces. With its rich nutritional profile and versatile culinary uses, roe is a valuable ingredient in many cuisines around the world.
