Shad Roe


product Specifics On Quality: Reddish orange to blond in color, but not bloody.

Primarily Sold As: In pairs

Culinary: Poached, pan-fried in a seasoned coating.

Characteristic: When the forsythia starts to bud, usually signals the start of when the Shad should be coming up the rivers to spawn.  Large schools will start making their way up the rivers such as the Hudson, Connecticut, and Delaware.  For some people there is nothing better then Shad Roe; it is the bonus prize of catching a female Shad.  The eggs need to be just the right size, not overripe or under-formed. Some people love it with eggs at breakfast.
