Milt as food
Milt or soft roe also refers to the male genitalia of fish when they contain sperm, used as food.
In many cuisines, milt is served fried.
In the cuisine of the Netherlands they often fry herring milt and roe in a batter.
In Russian cuisine, herring milt (молока, "Moloka") pickled the same way as the rest of the fish, but eaten separately, sometimes combined with pickled herring roe.
A lot of cultures eat milt but it's usually not served as it's own dish.
