Instructions
  1. carefully separate roe lobes (you can do this at any time in the curing process - it might be easier as the roe dries) - soak shad roe in 10% salt solution (100g/1liter) overnight
  2. remove roe from solution, dry on paper towels
  3. layout a few dry paper towels on a plate, put down a layer of salt on the towels, then lay the roe on top of the salt - add more salt on top of the roe - refridgerate
  4. change out the paper towels and salt every day for 3 or 4 days
  5. brush off salt from roe - poke a hole through the thicker end of the roe and loop some string through - hang roe in a cool dry place for 2 weeks
  6. at this point the roe should be pretty firm - remove string, brush with olive oil, wrap tightly, and refrigerate
