When I am in the mood to treat myself, I will add mentaiko (marinated pollock roe; see photo on page 2) to my shopping basket. Besides making a quick & super-indulgent mentaiko pasta with it, my other favourite use is to bake half-shelled scallops in mentaiko sauce, aka Hotate Meitakiyaki. If serving scallops in half shells is beautiful, there must be a word beyond beautiful for scallops baked with mentaiko sauce – I simply adore the orange hue.

I love to order this dish at Japanese restaurants, but they are pricier than home-cooked and usually not too generous with the fish roe. So I am really happy that I can make this at home easily – only taking about 15 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to bake in the oven.

    can the mentaiko sauce be kept in the fridge for another day if i can’t finish using them all in a day?

      I think it should keep for another day; wrap the bowl in cling wrap and refrigerate.
