Tried some more places and ain’t no shad roe in this town. Reluctantly driven from eggs to gonads.

I searched in a lot of stores for it.  Ended up with Maine sea urchin from Eataly instead.

I think it's just a matter of calling ahead as they don't bother offering it retail.

All I’m saying is that Nero Wolfe is going nuts at this point.

The store I talked with said on Tuesday that they'd let me know what good egg sacs would come their way.

 

It's Friday night. I think they kept them for themselves.

Alas, the fresh roe (from a John Dory) turned out to be so mild that it was barely noticeable amid the potato/olive oil/lemon/pepper. I'll toss the rest with some pasta, but next time I'll try making taramasalata with the jarred, smoked/salted stuff.

Let me know how the pasta comes out. I just bought John Dory roe at Union Square.

Can I make taramasalata from fresh roe? My online search has not provided a definitive answer.

If you do, please be careful to completely remove the roe sac first as it has many blood vessels and John Dory (despite not being an oily fish) can have very high histamine levels.

Thanks for the advice. It looks like Josh Karpf brined it first. Maybe he'll weigh in.

Brining would also help pull the blood out.

Huh. After removing the sac I soaked the eggs only in cold water, not a brine. Its only fault was mildness, not inducing diarrhea, headache, rhinoconjunctival symptoms, asthma, hypotension, arrhythmia, urticaria, pruritus, flushing, and other conditions in patients with histamine intolerance. I'm grateful to apparently not have that intolerance.
