Tobiko....that delicious, delectable, crunchy-pop-in-your-mouth jumble of green flying fish eggs garnishing the white salmon and prawn in the picture....if you haven't tried it you MUST! I had forgotten its pleasures till my friend and colleague, Chef Debbie of Yummy-Issimo mentioned tobiko in her blog. Thanks Deb!
Here in the Charlotte, NC area it's almost impossible to find some of the most common ingredients (think I can find your fresh dates, Deb???) and I cannot find tobiko. Trader Joes is supposed to stock it, but of course, ours doesn't. "Maybe during the holidays," the pimply clerk told me. No luck. Maybe when pigs fly?
