Shad Roe is a delicious delicacy that is the actual egg sack set of the shad fish, and is surprisingly not fishy. The roe has a bright orange color and a rich, slightly sweet nutty flavor (not intense like caviar). The texture can be compared to fine ground sausage. Fresh Shad Roe is very delicate, so be sure to cook on medium-low heat, too high a heat will cause the egg sac to pop.

  • The maximum reported age for American Shad is 13 years.
  • The Latin name for the American Shad means “delicious.”
  • Shad Roe is only harvested from February to May.
  • Shad is a member of the herring family.
