Cooks County Loves Steelhead Roe Too

I'm happy to report that glorious Steelhead roe continues to pop up on creative menus around town, most recently at Cooks County, where chef Daniel Mattern is putting my new favorite ingredient on top of hard-boiled eggs with a dollop of creme fraiche (I think it was creme fraiche - all I really remember is the incredible flavor of the roe!). Unlike at Son of a Gun, the roe is not smoked but presented fresh - a distinctly different flavor.


I probably should just go out and buy a big jar of it at this point...it's time. I'm also curious to see if any sushi chefs out there are presenting Steelhead roe as a change-of-pace alternative to Ikura...hmm.
