Fish Roe Any One?

Growing up in Sibu in those days meant that we had some of the best fish in the world when money allowed the purchases. And having uncles who were fishermen also helped because we could get bargains or even free fish.

I remember my father would also bring terubok and the females with lots of roe in them. Black pomfret also gave us a lot of fish roe. But the best are from mackerel or ma kah...and we often only had the fish eggs which could be bought separately in those days for 1 or 2 dollars only.

AT that time we have not heard of caviar of course.

this trip to Kuching gave me an extra new perception. New fish and new types of marketing strategy in selling of the fresh fish roe!!

Now it is not advisable for me to enjoy these fish roe any more...to be health-conscious one must avoid lots of food...

But it is good to remember the old days and walk down memory lane with siblings !!

Satok Road Market - which will be moved across the bridge soon.....has this special fish  with its stomach opened up to show its roe...
Five of them in a plate with all the stomachs opened. This feature is rather unique in Sarawak. I do not think there is any other place in the world showing fish roe in this way...Correct me if I am wrong.
Many men believe in eating fish roe to keep their maleness healthy.

Wenn...many years down the road..I was a bit queazy when I took these photos...I found the fish so oily!! And in the mid morning heat..I just felt that the roe was already too stale!

Sarawaklens...I have yet to find the name of the fish...Cannot be ikan sembilan!! But short enough. However was the price just for the fish eggs...??
