The color of Salmon Roe is vivid and bright – reddish to bright orange, like the color of its flesh. These pearls are rather large and translucent, with a pronounced “pop” when biting into them, which is followed by its intense flavor of ocean, salt and fish.

In the US, most folks will use the terms “roe” and “caviar” interchangeably. Speaking of caviar, did you know that word “caviar” comes from the Turkish “havyar,” which in turn comes from ”khayah,” the Persian word for “egg”?
Use Salmon Roe to enhance your favorite omelets, dips, spreads and sauces. You may also add it as a colorful and delicious topping to hors d'oeuvres. We like it paired with crème fraiche or sour cream and stuffed into blinis.
When the pearls of Salmon Roe “pop” in your mouth, you’ll enjoy a deliciously excellent source of Calcium and Phosphorus, and a good source of protein, Selenium, Iron, Magnesium, and Vitamins B12 and B6.
