Your thoughts…

  1. That is a great idea – roe burgers!! I can use other types of roes too, right? I have to try this soon!

  2. Sig – I have never tried different roe, cod roe is the only one I have ever seen in the shops, but probably yes, as long as it is so firm that you can slice it…

  3. I had to laugh! I saw a can of cod roe, which I haven’t tasted since I was very young (my father eats everything and shared with me), and decided to buy it and try maybe a burger or something.. and here you come along randomly with a recipe. I didn’t think about breading them. Have to try with and without..
