You call the female fish "roe"? I thought "roe" was the eggs.

The roe is the best part of the shad to eat. It's the only fresh roe I've seen for sale, in some of the better sea food stores around here during the shad run. I've only eaten shad once and they were caught in the Delaware above Hancock, late in the run. The experience lent some truth to the idea that the best way to cook and eat them is to lay them on a cedar plank and cook them slowly. When they're done throw away the shad and eat the plank. They may taste better when they're fresh from the ocean. I'll have to check out the store where I usually get my fresh sea food in a month or so and see if they have them and give shad another try. Or go to the shad festival in Lambertville, NJ and check out shad as food again.
