Recipe Description
Like many old fashioned foods cod roe has been almost forgotten. It is both inexpensive and delicious. It still turns up between January and April in many fish markets and is well worth looking for. Cod's roe is also sold smoked.

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1/2 Cup(c)  seasoned flour
1   beaten egg
1 Cup(c)  fine white bread crumbs
2 Tablespoon(T)  butter
6 Ounce(oz)  cod roe or shad


Rinse roe gently in cold water and then tie it loosely in muslin. Choose a saucepan just large enough to fit. Cook the roe in boiling salted water for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on thickness. It should be firm to the touch. Drain, put on a plate and cover with another plate to weigh it down slightly. Cool and refrigerate overnight. The next day, cut roe into 1/4 inch thick slices. Dip each slice into seasoned flour, add beaten egg, and bread crumbs. Fry slices in bacon fat or melted butter until crisp and golden on both sides.

Additional notes

Serve with crisp slices of bacon and a few fried potatoes, or simply bread and butter. Cod's roe is also good dipped in a batter and deep-fried until crisp. A suitable variation on cod's roe is shad.
