Omega-3s are abundant in cod roe. 137 milligrams of essential fatty acid are included in one tablespoon of cod roe. Salmon, on the other hand, has only 47 milligrams per gram. Cod roe also contains important nutrients, including Vitamin B12 and dietary fibre, essential for strong bones and immune systems and healthy metabolism and digestive system.
Scandinavian and Mediterranean cuisines rely heavily on cod roe. It’s commonly made by boiling it wrapped in parchment, then chilling it, deep-frying it, or whipping it with oil, breadcrumbs, salt, onion, and lemon in Taramasalata. Serve with oaked Semillon-Chardonnay or Chardonnay-Semillon from Australia.
