Last night spent about an hour pickling shad. I'll know in a couple of days about the result. Used the pickled herring recipe from Jewish Cookery, Leah W. Leonard, 1968 edition. Didn't have milt and did not include sour cream, both of us being lactose intolerant.

Shad roe tomorrow. The only major ingredient other than the roe is bacon. Slow cooked is best, with the bacon under the roe. According to McPhee, the bacon may have to be finished to crispness after cooking the roe.
