American Paddlefish roe comes from the original American Paddlefish freshwater sturgeon (also known as spoonbill), and is one of the entry level roes. It is often called the first-timers caviar for its bold and earthy flavor. Aromatic and savory, it resembles the more expensive Osetra and Sevruga sturgeon caviars in appearance and taste, with slighty smaller eggs, glossy light grey to black color, a robust flavor and firm texture.
Our caviar is prepared only with pure gourmet sea salt, yielding "Malossol" caviar of exceptional quality. Our 1, 2, and 4 ounce selections come in glass jars. Our 1.75 and 5.5 ounce selections come in attractive crystal glass jars, perfect for gift giving. All other sizes come in elegant traditional tins. Labeling may vary slightly. Shelf life is 4 to 6 weeks, refrigerated, ideally at 28 to 32 degrees. Makes a great American caviar gift.
Species: Polyodon Spathula
