This is such a late post – shad roe was in season in March, and I’m posting in April. When I first saw it I was like HOLY MOTHER__________ IT LOOKS LIKE A HUGE dick! I’ve never seen roe so big before!

The tiny fish eggs on the udon look (and taste a bit) like grated cheese, making the whole dish look very Italian-pasta-ish. It was super easy & fast to make, too.
