An easy and satisfying quick lunch
Recipe type: Lunch
  • About 2 oz soft roes (the white ones)
  • Flour and salt
  • Butter (about 1 tbsp)
  • I slice of sourdough bread (or any nice bread)
  1. On a plate mix about 1 tbsp of plain flour and a few pinches of salt (I like Malden Salt) and use this to coat the soft roes.
  2. Melt the butter in a small frying pan on a medium heat (not too hot or you will burn the butter) and then fry the roes. They will curl up - try to gently straighten them in the pan but don't worry too much. They are done when they are lightly golden.
  3. I also then used up the butter in the pan by gently frying a my slice of bread - so as not to waste the butter and fishy juices
  4. Serve the bread and fish together. I find it easiest to eat them with a knife and fork but you could just pile the roes on top.
  5. Enjoy!
As fish roes are quite rare nowadays -buy them when you see them so you can try this delicious and easy lunch recipe.
