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.

Great for The Price, Perfect for Entertaining

Though it doesn't encapsulate the more complex notes of finer brands, this caviar is wonderful for the price. A happy medium for entertaining and relaxing, I am very satisfied with this bowfin. Awesome flavour and texture, would definitely purchase again.

Bowfin

Tasted just exactly as I recall the caviar I bought in Moscow. It was a big hit at the dinner party, and the best part is I still have a bottle or 2 in reserve.
