herring roe on kelp

apart from eating it raw, what are the ways to prepare it? Is there a way to pickle or what spices would go best with roe on kelp? What is the best way to store it? Hard to fing anything on the internet on this subject. Share your first hand knowledge please. For example, can a seviche type recipe work on herring roe on kelp? I tried salting (not good), and blanching (also very so-so) and so far I find eating it raw is about the best. But then, added some tobasco and soy and it was something interesting. I am sure there must be tried and true spices that do better though.

Cut the Kelp with the Roes on it into sections (about the same size as a fish finger) Roll it in flour which has been seasoned with some white pepper, salt and Paprika then fry the Kelp Roe strips in butter. A bit off Sea Lettuce makes a nice side dish to the Roes.

Interesting... Is it easy to spearate the roe from the kelp?

We italians make pasta with everything. I bet that some olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley and cherry tomatos with the roe on top of a linguini plate would make an amazing meal. You have to pour some of the pasta cooking water on it to add some moisture and finish the cooking in the pan where you cooked the sauce.
