  • Tasting Notes

    Indigenous to the Great Lakes area, this fish produces roe with small eggs, colored a soft, golden yellow. The individual eggs are crisp with a mellow and slightly fruity flavor. Whitefish roe is an extremely affordable option when serving a sizable number of guests. Its mild flavor also makes it very appealing to those who might be unfamiliar with roes.

  • Beverage Pairings

  • Serving Suggestions

    Because of its mild flavor, this roe makes a great addition to any flavorful seafood dish. Also, with it's firm pop, adding it to any soft food (such as pasta or boiled potatoes) will add a lively and pleasing texture.

  • Storage

    When refrigerated properly (between 32˚ and 38˚F), vacuum sealed caviar will maintain its freshness until the expiration date indicated on the package. To preserve best flavor and texture, place in a bowl of ice in the coolest part of your refrigerator (usually the back) and refresh ice once a day. Once opened, caviar should be consumed within one day.
