The art of eating fish sperm

Simply put, Shirako is the sperm sacs of male cod fish. Think of it like caviar, except instead of the eggs from a female fish, it’s the eggs from a male. Not such a gross food when you think of it like that, is it?

Soft in texture, Shirako is comparable to cream cheese, which is served either raw or cooked. If you’re trying it for the first time, we suggest Shirako tempura. Otherwise try it on top of sushi, or as a custard in a small teacup. Like caviar, it has a distinct fishy and salty taste, but is not too overpowering.

If you didn’t know you were eating fish sperm, you’d probably even enjoy it! Overall, this is one “disgusting” food that’s perhaps not so gross after all!
