Known also as Spoonbill, Paddlefish caviar (or paddlefish roe) comes from the eggs of the Paddlefish freshwater sturgeon (Polyodon spathula) that lives in the lakes and rivers of Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky. This large fish delivers a beautiful and flavorful caviar, very comparable its cousin, the Caspian Sevruga, but at a much more wallet-friendly price.
The flavor is earthy and bold, but with a lovely, delicate buttery taste that smooths over the palate. The caviar pearls are small and glossy, the color varying from darker grey to a lighter silver. Without the crisp pop of Sevruga, Paddelfish has a pleasantly softer texture, deliciously enveloping..
Prepared “malossol”, our Paddlefish caviar is lightly salted with pure sea salt, always fresh, and always of exceptional quality. Enjoy this like any other fine caviar, simply, on toast points or blini with a dollop of crème fraiche, or over a hard-boiled egg.
