American Paddlefish Caviar

Size *
Current stock: 0


American Paddlefish, also known as "spoonbill" because of its duckbill-like snout, is a cartilaginous cousin to the Hackleback sturgeon wild caught in the Mississippi River. Our fine paddlefish roe harvested from the Mississippi and White River systems ranges in color from light green to dark steel gray, and is comparable to Caspian Sea Sevruga in flavor. A fine yet less expensive alternative to sturgeon caviar. 

Hand packed and quality checked for color, size, freshness, flavor and texture.

An excellent compromise

Slightly stronger flavor than the osetra we tasted right after, but quite pleasant - a good way to extend the party at a much more reasonable price!

excellent compromise

A good assertive (not overly fishy but had flavor) roe - not quite osetra but a nice way to extend the party at a much lower price point. I will purchase this again!
