Salmon roe: shelf-life, care, and favorite ways to eat @ home

thegreek | Dec 18, 2004 10:13 AM

I am going to treat myself to some salmon roe for the holidays. I am trying to figure out how much to buy and I am wondering how long it will last under ideal conditions? Also, any tricks or ideas about how to store would be appreciated. At sushi joints I see it housed in plain plastic or glass airtight containers.

My favorite use salmon roe was in a handroll with salmon skin, roe, and cream cheese, and some chervil. (I think) That said, I could eat salmon just with some rice. I think my first use will just be salmon topped with some craime fraiche and roe. Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.

p.s. has anybody had the sevruga they sell this time of the year at Costco?
