Herring are forage fish, mostly belonging to the family Clupeidae.
Herring often move in large schools around fishing banks and near the coast. The most abundant and commercially important species belong to the genus Clupea, found particularly in shallow, temperate waters of the North Pacific and the NorthAtlantic Oceans, including the Baltic Sea, as well as off the west coast of South America. Three species of Clupea are recognised, and provide about 90% of all herrings captured in fisheries. Most abundant of all is the Atlantic herring, providing over half of all herring capture. Fishes called herring are also found in the Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean, and Bay of Bengal.
Herring played a pivotal role in the history of marine fisheries in Europe,and early in the 20th century, their study was fundamental to the evolution of fisheries science.These oily fish also have a long history as an important food fish, and are often salted, smoked, or pickled.
Masago is the roe of Capelin, an Atlantic and Artic fish. Perhaps the tropical sun is needed to give Tobiko roe its bright colors, as Masago is dull and usually dyed before it is eaten to give it a more pleasing appearance. While Masago shares a similar taste to Tobiko, it lacks the same distinctive crunch and is in general a more boring and less versatile ingredient than Tobiko in sushi cuisine. This has not stopped many sushi restaurants from substituting Masago for Tobiko because of one big difference between the two roe – Masago is noticeably cheaper than Tobiko. Tobiko is usually a higher quality product than Masago, but this has not stopped restaurants from substituting the two to help their bottom line. Tobiko is also slightly larger than Masago. If you want to enjoy Tobiko, it can be purchased on its own from sushi retailers to make sure you are getting the crunchy sweetness you are looking for.
To sum up in conclusion, we developed this dish, mix herring fish with masago. You can dip it in wasabi and soy sauce when you eat it. That sweet and sour flavor can touch your taste nerve and hooks up your appetite.
