Ancient unchanged formula for preserving fish roe. Salt,sunshine,air. Normally its mullet in may .Big schools run up the coast close to shore. Roe is worth more than the fish by a long way.I think sea mullet cleaned properly is nice fish but its crab pot bait to a lot of people. I paid overs but I just grabbed 2 sets of roe.Price will come down bit but thanks to a few TV chefs spilling the beans the price has jumped over the last few years. I will insert a smoking stage in this batch,just in the MES at 50c for a few hours with very light smoke. I can't go 100% traditional because thats air dried in the sun & I have to keep it out of reach of these 2.
