Shad & Shad Roe
We usually make a trip to Hale's shad in Rocky Hill Ct. about this time of year to pick up 6 or 8 pair of shad roe and maybe a fillet or two, but with gas at around 4 clams a gallon, were wondering if there are any fish mongers in the western Boston 'burbs or elsewhere who carry shad & roe at reasonable prices.
Anyone seen any Connecticut, or other roe and fillets around?
Willing to travel, but not too pumped about paying too much for said delicacy. We usually have a fresh pair (sorry) for dinner in the day or two after our trip, and freeze the rest. Frozen, they seem to last for several months, and are still excellent.
Last time I was at Hale's, I think a pair was going for around $8, and Bill always seems to have some nice fish that he catches netting the Ct. river.
