Flying Fish Roe Sushi
flying fish roe has
a deep golden
color. When clumped together, they increase in red hue and look more
the flying fish roes are removed from the fish, they are separated from
casings and salted for a few hours. Unfortunately, some low grade
flying fish roes that are faint in color have artificial food coloring
added to make them look more orange, or green (marketed as wasabi tobiko).
Individual roes are very small, and the
membrane is tougher than the salmon roe. They “pop”
in your mouth when they are
chewed, and many people enjoy the texture of it. It doesn’t
have a strong aroma,
but has a slight dry aftertaste. For its rather clear taste, no special
preparations are done; salt curing is enough to quickly release extra
moisture and concentrate the flavors.
Soy sauce is usually not necessary for the flying fish roe sushi.
