Shad Roe

With Galactica now finished until the fall, what am I going to blog on about. Well- this week it's food. I have now had shad roe two times in the last 7 days. I first heard about this from my cousin's friend, who used to eat it whenever she was ill. I researched some more on this local dish. The shad is a type of herring, and it's roe is considered a specialty on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. It's seasonal- mostly harking the return of spring time. Preparation of the dish is simple - grilled with salt and pepper- some lemon sprayed on top. It has the texture of a ground chuck steak, but the flavor is much lighter.

It's scary but I sort of miss shad roe now that I live in the Midwest. It's hard enough to explain to Hoosiers what scrapple is.
