This survey from @nifty looked at egg-based foods, covering both bird eggs and fish roe.
My parents often ate cod roe and herring roe; I only tried cod once as a child, but I can still remember the unpleasant texture. Although we ate a lot of salmon in our house (my father would regularly catch many fish) I cannot remember salmon roe ever appearing on the table. I don’t know if it was that he only went fishing after the spawning season, or he chucked them away, or what. Next time I’m on the phone I’ll have to ask!
By the way, note that percentages with one decimal place are exact values, but with no decimal places are estimates read off graphs.
Here’s some typical salmon roe – to me it just looks too polished and deeply-coloured, so I always suspect there must be artificial colouring added (they do it to farmed salmon meat, so why not eggs too) and something else pre-serving for that extra shine:
Q1: About how many eggs do you eat per week? (Sample size=2,735)
11 to 15
16 to 20
21 to 30
31 or more
Counting 11 to 15 as 11, 16 to 20 as 16, 21 to 30 as 21, and 31 or more as 31, the average weekly egg consumption was around 4.5. It’s not clear if this was eggs as eggs only, or included an estimate of eggs in other food like baking.
Q2: What points are important when buying eggs? (Sample size=2,735, multiple answer)
Number in pack
Region of origin
Shop selling them
How they are kept (chilled or room temperature)
How the birds are kept
Whether fertilised or not
Don’t buy eggs
Q3: How do you prefer your boiled eggs? (Sample size=2,735)
Don’t eat boiled eggs
Q4: What do you put on your fried eggs? (Sample size=2,735, multiple answer, top ten)
Salt and pepper
Chuno (Brown) sauce
Tonkatsu (brown) sauce
Q5: Do you prefer your tamagoyaki (omelette roll) sweet or salty? (Sample size=2,735)
Don’t eat tamagoyaki
Q6: What egg-based foods do you like? (Sample size=2,735, multiple answer, top ten)
Oyakodon, chicken and egg on rice
Raw egg on rice
Chahan mushi, steamed egg pudding
Omu-rice, rice-stuffed omelette
Q7: What kinds of eggs do you like? (Sample size=2,735, multiple answer)
Shishamo (fish fried whole with roe intact)
Flying fish roe
Bora (mullet) roe
Dislike, don’t eat eggs
