Leftover smelt roe - what should I do with it?

matthewf01 | Feb 28, 2012 08:40 AM

I'm coming off a homemade sushi bender weekend... bought a big tub (probably 1 cup in total) of smelt fish roe (the tiny orange ones) of which I used a few tablespoons worth.

After making some standard varieties of maki/temaki this weekend, and using up the leftover sushi-grade tuna/salmon last night by making "quinoa sushi" (the results of which were surprisingly impressive), I'm still left with a big pile of roe I don't want to waste, since I do love it.

Any other ideas on what to do with it? I'm trying to avoid rice/grains/fast-burning carbs during weekdays (which is why I saved my sushi binge for the weekend), otherwise I'd probably eat it mixed with Kewpie on Saltines :)

Welcoming inventive suggestions.
