Have you ever tried fish eggs? Fish eggs, or roe, is a common sight in our Japanese restaurant in Bothell. It’s frequently a taste that many Americans need to work their way up to, but when they finally do they’re generally pleased that they did. After all, not only is roe a delicious part of any sushi, it’s also surprisingly good for you.
As you might know, seafood is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids. These highly beneficial fats are invaluable towards maintaining a healthy heart and circulatory system. You can get a good dose of Omega-3 from fatty fish like salmon and tuna, but the absolute greatest source of Omega-3 is fish eggs. A minimal consumption of roe, in particular salmon roe, can easily give you your recommended serving of fatty acids.
At Sushi Hana, you can enjoy roe in many forms. We have salmon roe, tobiko (flying fish roe), and masago (smelt roe), either sprinkled across our rolls or comprising the sushi’s main topping by itself. If you’ve never tried roe before, come and give it a whirl today!
