Many persons consume fish roe and consider it quite the treat. Roe caviar is big business, and many in AK delight in making their own. Enough said.
Now for the flip side; salmon sperm.
I remove the two packs from the buck and simply marinate them in a little salted water.
When I have my smoker at the ready for a load of salmon fillets, I will add these in.
It will be a an amber colored pack that has firmed up. Sliced thin and seved on a water cracker it makes an unbelieveable appetizer. It is rich in taste, absolutely, and with a flavor of its own.
If you are into fish, and like smoked product, give this one a try the next time you blow your alder smoke...
