you are right G0OSE, I prefer fresh herring roe to tinned cod roe.

I bet there are a lot more people buy it than you'd think. I discovered it about ten years ago and buy it regularly, it's lovely. I don't like the "fresh" stuff from the fishmonger but I do like this.

Maybe, but you are probably looking at it through 'older' eyes (like me) I bet less than 1 in 10,000 under 30's eat this regularly (I doubt a good proportion would even know what it was,or what to do with it lol). Sure, if you move up to the 40+ bracket you may sell slightly more - a bit like liver and other meat offal - when I was a kid it was a weekly staple at my nan's, now I'm 40 and I doubt I've eaten offal more than a couple of times in 10 years. My 8 yr old has probably never (knowingly) eaten it and never will lol!

Coventry City Fans wouldn't!

this is yummy

I've never eaten it & wouldn't know what to it with. How do you prepare it?

Genuinely interested

I only found out about it becasue a friend made it for lunch one day and I liked it.

It's quite solid so it stays in one piece, like corned beef does. So I slide it out of the tin and slice it into about 1cm thick slices then fry them in a spot of butter and oil, for a couple of mins each side til piping hot, then sprinkle a bit of lemon juice on it. you can coat it in breadcrumbs then fry it but Im not a fan of breadcrumbs on stuff so don't bother.

It has a nice mild flavour and a nice firmish texture. Do give it a try!

Same with the tins of smoked oysters you can buy, or lots of other items, Im sure. I imagine they just adjust their stock levels to suit. They must sell enough to bother. Maybe these tins are nearing their expiry and they need to adjust their levels at that store. They've sold this for a long time though and I see you can buy tins three times this size.

I like liver, though my mum never made it when I was growing up, I tasted it as an adult. I've tried my son with every food, but he's unfortunately what I call a "beige" eater, lol.
