Description

Description

Indigenous to the Missouri and Mississippi river areas, American sand sturgeons (also known as hackleback, shovelnose or switchtail) are faster growing than most other species, reaching about 38" at full maturity. Being harvested from the world's smallest sturgeon, this caviar is small and firm with all the characteristics and tastes of the classic wild sturgeon. The pronounced flavor and glistening black eggs with hints of emeralds and gold makes Hackleback our most popular domestic sturgeon caviar. 

The roe is dark and firm with a very mild, subtle flavor. Being the only commercially fished sturgeon in the United States, Hackleback is the last American Wild caviar. A very nice, wild caught U.S. product.

Perfect for any caviar appetizer

I used this caviar for a few different appetizer such as caviar on quail egg, blanched asparagus and baked purple potato chip. They all came out delicious. If you are planing on using caviar on a dish this is the one to go with, if you are planing on eating it as is then go with the more expensive once.

Perfect Entry-Level Caviar

I bought 2 oz of this Hackleback for NYE to share with 5 other adults. It was a huge hit, and everyone got pretty creative with how they used it. We all agreed that it was best with truffled mashed potatoes, but we also enjoyed it with oysters, potato chips, and just straight. This Hackleback didn't hold a candle to the white sturgeon caviar that we had with the NYE countdown, but I wouldn't expect it to at this price point. It's good bang for your buck and a fun way to indulge a little.
