Caviar from sturgeons is nice...even if it is black in colour. Fish roe in orange is fine in Sushis....but recently I had a different kind of encounter with eggs from ikan Bayong (local name)....
If it is a delicacy how does one feel eating such eggs as big as pre-laid chicken's( big marble size)?
The head of Bayong. The Bayong is not a very expensive fish and is usually cooked in curry. The steaks can also be deep fried and often used as part of the popular food Lelapan which originated from Indonesia.
Steaks from some Bayong (around 4 kg - 6 kg fish)
A close-up of the fish eggs (each at least 1 inch in diameter).
I thank the lady fishmonger for letting me photograph these for my blog. I'll take pictures of these eggs but I won't eat them. They are too beautiful to be eaten.
