Lumpfish roe

    A Danish delicacy which comes in early spring.
    Eat traditional, with sour cream, chopped red onion and toast or try to serve it in a slightly different way in a soup, a vegetable puree or fresh pancakes as the recipe here.

    Roe is held together by large membranes, these are removed by putting the roe in a bowl with some water and salt. Then whisk carefully  with a whisk  until all membranes are stuck in the whisk. Membranes peeled off the whisk and this is done a few times for all the membranes away from the roe. The water is sieved off and roe are slightly charged for all the water has dripped off. Then season with salt, so they are ready to serve.
    Roe stored in the refrigerator and will keep 2-3 days.
