Description

Description

Bowfin, better known by its Cajun name "Choupique", is even more ancient than the sturgeons and similarly has hardly changed over millions of years of existence. This bony fish yields small, black, sometimes red-tinted roe that makes a good, far less expensive substitute for sturgeon caviar. It is highly regarded by connoisseurs for its intense earthy and distinctive flavor, with mild tang and hints of spice. A super affordable, unique tasting caviar substitute!

Hand packed and quality checked for color, size, freshness, flavor and texture. Unlike sturgeon, bowfin roe will turn red if heated.

So amazing for the...

I grew up in the Middle East and was spoiled with Iranian caviar. As an adult, I just couldn’t afford that luxury. I discovered American Black Bowfin caviar and I fell in love! Not only does it taste amazing, it’s also extremely reasonable. My husband and I treat ourselves once or twice a year to splitting a lb between us. Talk about a luxurious meal. We accompany it with melba toast, chopped egg, chopped onion and sour cream. We also do creme fràiche and lemon rind. Just delicious. Caviar Star does a wonderful job of packaging and shipping.
