Paddlefish Caviar

Known also as Spoonbill, American 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, comparable to 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 American paddlefish caviar pearls are small and glossy, the color varying from darker grey to a lighter silver. Without the crisp pop of Sevruga, Paddlefish has a pleasantly softer texture, deliciously enveloping. Prepared “malossol”, our American Paddlefish caviar is lightly salted with pure sea salt, always fresh, and always of exceptional quality. Enjoy this Paddlefish roe like any other fine caviar, simply, on toast points or blini with a dollop of crème fraiche, or over a hard-boiled egg.

Sourced from the American Spoonbill, this freshwater sturgeon produces a tasty roe with a bold earthy flavor profile. Tender with a soft ‘pop’ on the tongue, its buttery finish and elegant look make this paddlefish roe caviar a popular choice!

Paddlefish Caviar Taste

Often referred to as the first-timer’s caviar, paddlefish black caviar is a cousin to the sturgeon, the species of fish that produces “true caviar.” Considered by chefs and gourmands to be the market’s best alternative, there are only slight differences between this and the classic Russian varieties. Slightly smaller in size; and softer on the tongue, each delicate orb bursts with a tender pop giving way to a flood of rich botanical flavor with nutty highlights.

How to Serve

The best paddlefish caviar available on the market, this exceptional roe offers an excellent way to experience a gourmet treat for the first time. Serve it traditionally alongside toast points, blini, and creme fraiche to enjoy it at its finest. Its profile is best preserved by using a classic service set made from glass, crystal, or mother of pearl. Metals can impart an off flavor to fish eggs and should always be avoided.

Hackleback vs. Paddlefish Caviar

In technical terms, Hackleback is a member of the Sturgeon family; this decidedly puts Hackleback roe within the delicious realm of classic caviar. Spoonbill, while a close relative of the sturgeon and referred to as another member of the “primitive” family of ancient fish, is, in fact, within the Polyodontidae family, excluding it from authentic status. While not legitimate in the full sense of the word, our Paddlefish caviar for sale is widely considered one of the best alternatives to the pricey Russian options.

Paddlefish Caviar Pricing

The very best of the caviar substitutes, paddlefish eggs, offers a refined appearance and similar flavor profile to more expensive types. Smaller in size and softer in texture, retail paddlefish caviar prices are around ⅓ of the cost of their Caspian cousins. Offering the best of both worlds enjoy a gourmet eating experience at a fraction of the price.
