IKEA's fish roe paste in a tube is well known amongst Japanese expats living abroad. I wanted to eat it so much that I went to IKEA just to buy it the week after I got here.
I used to love tarako pasta when I was in Japan. I loved it so much...but I can't eat it over here?! Nooo! So, I experimented to come up with this!!
If you use IKEA's Creamed Smoked Roe on its own, it's rather sweet, salty... and too sweet? So if you eat it as is you may end up missing Japanese tarako even more, so you are forewarned.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
