I have to say 'blimey!'. I've never seen such a huge amount of fish roe on one plate. I happen to love fish roe but its only ever to my knowledge eaten as a delicate topping - say on blinis or alternatively used in sushi. However, I've never eaten flying fish roe. Maybe they are different from salmon roe (which they resemble) and not so salty?

I have quite a bit of tobiko, a whole pound. I could feel free to splurge. It looks awesome and it was awesome. That much tobiko gave the salad a very nice texture.
