Pollock roe Tarako 原味鱈魚子
If you’ve ever had tarako, or “roe,” then you’ll know how it treats your taste buds. And it only gets better with pollock roe.
Pollock roe usually comes encased in a membranous sac—skin that is edible and chewy. The roe itself can be eaten raw. The pollock roe is sometimes prepared with the skin still on, to maintain the structural integrity of the roe.
Pollock roe can be used in a lot of dishes, including pasta, but it can also be eaten alone. And it is also from pollock roe that we get the famous Japanese Tarako.
