About Sakhalin say that everything is eaten caviar ladle buckets. For Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Actually this is a myth and the bike: red caviar is not included in the daily diet of the inhabitants of the island. They, as we, people from the mainland, eat it on holidays and in the mood. The fact that the eggs are not as available as we fantasize.
But anyone who flies from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, necessarily drags along a few kilograms of relatives and friends. It's true.
I had a chance to visit the fish factory near the town of Poronaysk. After this story you'll either love eggs even more, or once and for all stop eating it.
Fishing companies in Sakhalin are many, a few dozen. There are big players in this market driven products to the regions of Russia and even sell abroad, there are those who work in the area. There are smugglers, of course.
I visited the plant medium in size, employing about fifty people.
Work here is seasonal, peaking in summer, when is the salmon fishing season. Then dozens of fishing schooners go to sea, and dozens of aunts in caps separate the wheat from the chaff, that is, the ROE of the fish.
Can you imagine that somewhere spawn of fish are thrown in the trash? But only not in Russia, it's our national dish known throughout the world. By the way, some fools, on the contrary, fish discarded, leaving only the eggs. As a rule, poachers, fish requires further processing and storage, and they have neither the time nor the inclination.
The first stage is separation. Belly open with a knife, carefully take out the raw eggs and put in buckets.
After that, the fish goes to one shop, raw in another.
Something like that. Sorry, probably not very appetizing process, but it is a fact of life. Vegetarians somehow continue to eat fish, small animals although it is a pity.
Some days the fish comes to the plant so much that it just stack on the floor.
The raw is collected, sieved in a colander.
Then it several times sifted through a special sieve.
Nearly ready ROE. Now it needs to settle. Like, even the caviar is salted.
And then Packed in jars. It is best to buy such plastic, there are no preservatives, and stored but this product is not very long. The freshest and the best, of course, in the far East. Before you get to Central Russia...in cans not caviar, and tin.
Besides caviar, this plant and make all your favorite dried fish snacks. Here the process is much easier. Caught — removed innards.
Hung out to dry.
For all you beer lovers with dried fish. Pounding the table — not to perestat!
This salmon, maybe I'll make sushi. What are the rolls on Sakhalin — it is something! Nothing to do with what we have in Moscow.
Maybe make dried salmon slices. Also delicious.
Another plant somehow makes dumplings. And beef.
So here is a non-core asset.
Herring, flounder, salmon, mackerel. Humpback, whales, coho, sockeye, and Chinook salmon. Dried, fresh, any fish.
And the girl on the fish already can not look.
Well, you will after this story the eggs are? published
