  • 1 lb pasta spaghetti, linguine, or your choice
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 6 oz salmon fish roe
  • 8 Tbsp unsalted butter 1 stick, I recommended Kerry Gold
  • 1 fresh lemon
  • 1 sheet nori seaweed cut into thin strips
  • 1 stalk green onions finely sliced


  • Bring a big pot of water to a boil. Add in salt and the pasta and cook to al dente. Stir the pasta so it won't stick to the pot. Then let it cook according to the direction on pasta packaging. It should have that al dente bite to it when you try it
  • Drain off the water, but do not rinse the pasta and transfer to a large serving bowl. Add in fish roe and butter, juice of 1 lemon to the hot spaghetti. Toss to mix everything and the butter will melt as you are tossing it. Have a taste. The fish roe itself is salty. If you need more seasoning, add a bit more salt to your taste. Garnish with nori strips and few sprinkles of green onions. Serve immediately.
