[HR-01]Salted Herring Roe on Kelp 350g



We proudly present our carefully chosen extra thick salted herring roe on kelp.

Both sides of the kelp is densely covered naturally by wild spawning herring with their roe. Enjoy their ocean fresh aroma and pleasant crispeness.


  • The key to preparing delicious herring roe on kelp is in the shio-nuki, or the "desalting" process. First, the herring roe is soaked in 1L of water with a teaspoon of salt. After 2 hours, replace the herring roe in fresh salt water. Repeat these steps 3-4 times.

    This desalting process allows the excess salt from the herring roe to move into the salt water, while retaining the natural flavor of the herring roe.
    It is a bad idea to do this in pure water since it would result in the removal of the salt only on the outside of the herring roe and would give the herring roe a bitter flavor.

  • After desalting, cut the herring roe into one inch pieces and marinate in soy sauce with katsuo-bushi,(shaved dried bonito) to finish it off.

  • If you want to be more adventurous, you could mix the herring roe pieces with shredded surume(dried squid) and marinate them in a sauce containing soy sauce, mirin(rice wine), and you have made a traditional Japanese dish called matsumae-zuke.

  • You could also mix the herring roe with thinly sliced cucumber (pickled in salt water beforehand). Marinate this in sanbai-su(mixture of vinegar, soy sauce, and sugar) and you have prepared yourself a local popular sunomono dish that is served in many Japanese restaurants in the Vancouver area.
***Best Before Date***

If kept in the refrigerator, an unopened package will last for 5-6 months. Even after the package has been opened, they will be good for 2-3 months as long as they are kept in strong salt water.

After the herring roe on kelp has been desalted, they can be stored in the refrigerator, but it is best to eat them while they are fresh.
