1 cup instant flour

Salt and pepper

2 pair shad roe

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 tablespoons butter

Juice of one lemon

1/4 cup chopped parsley

8 slices warm, cooked apple wood smoked bacon


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Dredge roe in seasoned flour. In a saute pan over medium heat, heat oil until hot. Add roe to pan and cook top side (side without vein) until well browned. Reduce heat, turn roe over, and continue to cook on second side until well browned and almost firm. Cover pan slightly to avoid dangerous splattering. Remove roe and blot on paper. Return saute pan to heat. Add butter, let melt, and cook until brown. Add lemon juice, allow to sizzle, and add chopped parsley. Plate roe and drizzle lemon butter over top. Serve smoked bacon on top of roe.;
