This recipe tells how to cure whole skeins for serving and provides a serving suggestion.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (1 beneficials)
  • Type A Non Secretor (1 beneficials)
  • Type O Non Secretor (1 beneficials)
  • Appetizer
  • 1/2 pound whole salmon skein(s).
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 6 cups water
  • Mayonnaise [check for avoids]
  • White Onion
  • Sourdough bread [or compliant substitute]
How to make it:
  1. Mix the water and salt and heat to about 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Add roe and stir until the eggs begin to fall from the skein while gently rubbing with thumbs as the skein begins to melt.
  3. Do not overheat as this will 'cook' the eggs and they will lose the desired color and flavor.
  4. Remove from heat and continue to rub the eggs free from the skin.
  5. Drain into a sieve and remove remaining skin.
  6. Place the clean, salted eggs into a glass container and refrigerate.
  8. Slice fresh open grain sourdough or french bread.
  9. Spread with mayonnaise and thinly sliced white onions. Top with Salmon roe.
  10. OPTIONS:
  11. Lox and Salmon roe together are good.
  12. Mayonnaise may be pureed with Kalamata olive or Tarragon for different flavors.
  13. Can also be served with crackers.
