Herring roe

Herring roe

I went to Waitrose last night and they had Herring Roe for £2.99 a kilo – so I thought I’d give it a go and so for just 52p I got 150g of it. It’s really nice and simple but I have to say that 150g is too much for one person, this was supposed to be my starter but I wasn’t hungry afterwards.

What you will need:

50g roe per person
Slice of nice bread – toasted
A handful of flour
Slice of lemon
Salt & pepper
A small knob of butter
2 tbsp of olive oil

Rince the roe and dry slightly with kitchen paper. Place the flour on a plate and add the roe, ensure the roe is completely dusted in flour. In a pan add the butter and oil, once hot add your roe and cook for a couple of minutes on both sides – they should become nice and golden. Whilst your roe are cooking toast your bread and then place your cooked roe on top of your it, add salt, pepper and a bit of lemon juice – you can serve with a side salad.

This is really easy, cheap and a little different – come on don’t be scared!

Enjoy
Mel!
