This time of year the Brook Trout are full of roe. Does anyone know if it’s edible? If so, how do you prepare it?

Yes, edible. Batter and fry same as fillets.

All I remember from eating northen pike and lake trout eggs that it was o'kay but really nothing special for me. If you fry trout eggs they will splatter in the pan often.

We ate lake trout eggs for the first time on a Quetico trip two weeks ago. I saw on social media that a friend of mine had harvested eggs from a lake trout and we wanted to give it a try because we incidentally kept a pregnant female trout. It was fantastic. It was like the richest, saltiest, earthiest hard-boiled egg I had ever tasted. Not much for texture, but a lot of flavor.

How did you prepare the eggs?

I had lake trout eggs a couple years ago. Not for me ...and never again. Very strong 'fishy' flavor. Maybe this could be masked with copious amounts of seasonings, butter, etc. But whenever you have to mask the flavor to this extent, you have to ask: what's the point?
