Looks good don’t it? That my friends, was a wonderful bite we had in Oakland, at a place called Hopscotch. Oyster, uni and salmon roe; it was like taking a bite of clean, buttery ocean. I just wanted to show that pic because it’s beautiful. What I wanted to talk about is what I found on my way to a dinner party. Didn’t really know what the hell I could use ’em in but I knew I’d fugger it out. What a fun little fruit. If you’ve never had ’em, they’re like sour lime caviar. The pulp is separated into perfect spheres and is quite easy to remove. I ended up making a “salsa” for some lamb meatballs, the caviar texture and look made it a great citric additive.
The one pictured has some pink rolling through but most are clear. The skin is usable but powerful.
