Method

Cook the soft carp roes gently in butter and pass through a fine sieve; mix the purée obtained with an equal amount of uncooked ordinary cream Royale; poach the mixture in small porcelain cases.

With the addition of extra egg yolks this mixture may be cooked in dariole moulds, turned out and coated with a fine light Sauce Béchamel finished with Crayfish Butter.
