Eat this for Osechi (New Year's feast), on top of warm rice, or with a glass of your favorite alcohol. It's great on other occasions and makes a fine replacement for vegetables and side dishes at parties.
This is a recipe we always cook at home for the New Years, but since my husband loves it so much, we often keep this stocked in the refrigerator.
This dish will taste better if you remove the salt from the herring roe and finely slice it, but it's convenient to make it without the herring roe.
