Melts or milts are the roes of male herring, often known as ’soft roe’. Rich and creamy, they literally melt in your mouth and are very good for you as they are full of vitamin D. Occasionally, we offer herring roe (from female herring) - sometimes known as ’hard roe’. These are classic tiny fish eggs, still in their enclosing skin. All items on this page are frozen in a block. If you don’t want to use them all at once, defrost, separate, then refreeze. Wondering how best to cook the melts? Check out our two quick recipes for melts -recipes

Featured customer reviews for herring melts

  • "What a wonderful treat to have herring melts once more after our local supermarkets (fish counter obviously) stopped providing them nearly 2 years ago. But there all similarities end. These really DID melt in the mouth and the flavour was awesome. (Maybe it's to do with the colder waters around Canada where they're sourced ?). As always from The Fish Society this is a great product, beautifully protected/packaged, and I'll definitely be re-ordering."
  • "Absolutely fabulous. Used to buy them from a supermarket (all sloppy, no individual pieces), these were beautiful, all able to be separated."
  • "Delicious, the packs divide readily following the instructions."
