    Sat here with the Welsh lass and we started talking about stuff we ate years ago  but don’t see now. We both agreed that we liked cod roe in tins in the 50’s/60’s in England. However, we haven’t seen it in years. Do the French eat cod roe? Is it available in tins? Also I cannot believe my translator that calls it “œufs de morue”. Is this right? Do supermarkets here sell it?

    In France, the fish, when it’s fresh, is called cabillaud. We call it morue when it has been salted.

    We’re eating fish roe, but we find them in glass jar, not in tins. They are normaly close to the fish counter, where they sell smoke salmon, tarama etc. I never noticed “oeufs de cabillaud”, but never looked for them either.

    cupcake to try and help! :good:

    I wrote      “We both agreed that we liked cod roe”

    Babeth replied     “In France, the fish, when it’s fresh, is called cabillaud”

    I wrote            “œufs de morue” which Babeth pointed out morue is salted cod which cannot supply roe.

    Gordon Bennett even I’m confused after that discombobulation! :wacko:

    Morue is also the zoological French name for cod in its swimming state.

    Try to keep up, Radon! Cod is cabillaud and/or morue in its natural state (though morue is also the name given to dried or salted cabillaud), which is why cod liver oil is called ‘huile de foie de morue’ in French.

    Cod roe (roe is ‘rogue’ in French) is ‘œufs de cabillaud’.

    Looks like I’m getting folk interested in the delicacy! The sunny weather made me make a childhood favourite, onions cut into rings and slices of cucumber all covered in vinegar. Reminds me of my childhood in England everything seemed to be smothered in vinegar. Boiled beetroot? Sliced and covered in vinegar. Tinned salmon? Mashed up in a bowl and drowned in vinegar. Yuk. :-(
