Fresh roe sacs - how to prepare?

I have a few sacs of fresh, raw roe, but I'm not sure how to handle them. Do I open the sac and remove the eggs? Do I eat the sac and everything in it? Cooked, raw?

This is an exciting and confusing time for me.


Thanks for the link, everyone. I'll definitely try that next time. This time, I tossed the sacs in a coconut milk/curry/cayenne mixture, then dredged them in potato starch and lightly sauteed them in coconut oil. Added a little sriracha and it was a nice little meal. If I did it again, I'd probably include some fish sauce in the mix, as these were from farmed striped bass and not nearly as salty as I'd guessed.

Unfortunately, the farmed eggs have a poorer omega-3:omega-6 ratio than wild eggs. Not really surprising, but still.
