Anyone ever buy fish roe? Salmon eggs? Caviar?

Thinking about making fish eggs a regular part of my diet. Love love love it in sushi! Plus it's a low-muscle-protein source of natural EPA and DHA omega 3's and generally extremely nutrient dense food.

I have to seriously consider this source... Especially if you buy 12 jars. Still, it seems expensive and I'm not sure how long it would take to go through 12 jars of the stuff.

Do you think this is a good thing to add to my diet? Do you? Where do you get fish eggs if so?

The commercial Kronos brand uses soy oil, so you probably need to make your own, with olive oil and mashed potatoes.

This stuff reminds me of the French dish brandade, which uses salt cod instead of carp roe. Both are hearty eating dishes, though brandade is milder flavored.

lol yeah but that Kalle's stuff just isn't what I envisioned. Might give it a try next time I go to IKEA though just for the heck of it.

That's exactly what roe is: fish eggs.

Looks a little funky though. I think what I need is a little more along the lines of fish eggs :-)

Yes, I've bough fish roe, specifically salmon roe before. It tasted rancid after getting it from 2 or 3 different sources. Before you buy 6 jars I would definitely buy 1 jar from a given source and make sure it agrees with you.

if you fish, carp roe in June is pretty good, with little if any BPA. and at least in Michigan carp enjoys no protection, you can net them too. If I had chickens or pigs, I would do that.

I eat fish roe a few times a week on hard-boiled eggs. My mom is from Sweden, so I grew up eating some weird food. I get mine at Ikea for about $3.50, but it's basically identical to Kalle's Kaviar, which you can buy on Amazon. It's got some sugar and canola oil in it, but I eat tiny amounts at a time, and I generally don't worry too much about condiments.
