Curing Salmon Roe Variations and More Uses for this Recipe:
This recipe is simply a basic brine with not a lot of external flavor, other than the dominant essence of the salmon eggs. If you would like to add some complexity, try the Westmalle Tripel Cured Salmon Caviar or Firestone Walker Double DBA Cured Salon Caviar recipe. This caviar isn’t as salty as commercial caviars, which I prefer. Because of the lack of salt and curing of the roe, this caviar will only last about 2 weeks under refrigeration.
This culinary technique can be used on other varieties fish eggs | roe.
