    Can you eat trout roe? How would you prepare it? Seems a shame to throw it out when I know other fish roe is so delicious. How about the liver? I've had monkfish liver in sushi restaurants, and it's really tasty.

    I'm not sure about the liver, but you can fry up the roe in some butter with a little bit of salt or soy suace and it is delicious. Eat it with crackers or small pieces of bread and enjoy!

        Actually, funny story. I was in 7th grade in Idaho and our science class had the opportunity to create a trout spawning ground in a tank. the hatchery brought the male/female fish and we squeezed the stuff out of them into dishes. I made a smart comment about eating the eggs which led to a dare (brought on by the hatchery employees) so trying to be a stud I ate some of the eggs. They were actually tolerable and no sickness came about. So I would say if it gets ya goin, squeeze 'em and eat 'em.

          I have eaten them fried like fish. They have a different taste. I like it. Poor man's caviar! Fish eggs are nutritious and delicious!

            I have often wondered about that myself. Good to know. Can you just carmelize them?

              Yes, you can eat trout roe, but I'm not sure how you could prepare it.

                Although you can eat it, I would personally rather use it for bait.

                  I don't know about eating them, but I the make great bait. My dad used to put them in bags and use them as bait all the time when I was a kid.

                        There are methods to cure Trout Roe similar to Salmon Row (Japanese Ikura). Here are a couple methods: https://norecipes.com/ikura-salmon-caviar

                          You can. Curing it actually can make for a tasty garnish.

                          However, I guess the real answer to your question is: You can do a great many things, it's the consequences you have to watch out for.
