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. 

PERISHABLE - SHIPS FEDEX OVERNIGHT

Surprised!

Many years ago we enjoyed caviar on our anniversary's but it was mostly Russian in those days. I tried the Bowfin and was very pleasantly surprised at how good it was considering the price. Going to enjoy it on our next anniversary.
