Just bought some shad, amazingly for the first time, and wonder how folks like to prepare it. I don't have the roe. Thanks!
Oh, I love shad and roe. I just cook them very simply in a little butter, salt and pepper.
Thanks so much, dymnyno! That's pretty much what I ended up doing and it was delicious.

What a neat piece, Cristina. Ours was beautifully filleted, no small feat. Thanks!
