How to Prepare Spot Prawn Caviar

This year I decided to try out Sitka Salmon Share. Sitka Salmon Share is similar to a CSA but it’s for seafood. You buy a share in advance of the season & that helps to support small, independently owned fishing boats in Alaska. Our December box was spot prawns & crab legs.

The spot prawns are loaded with eggs so I wanted to see how hard to would be to prepare caviar. As it turns out it’s not that hard at all.

The process I followed was from Hank Shaw of Hunter Angler Gardner Cook and it’s super simple.

With other roes you will try to remove the membrane completely but spot prawn roe is so small I don’t think that is possible.
