Red caviar

Red caviar: a gift from nature

If you are looking for a delicious product to diversify your diet, Salmon caviar is a great choice. Salmon caviar is the naturally red-colored roe of salmon. Since only the roe of sturgeons can actually be called caviar, the term salmon caviar is actually wrong. Rightly, it should be called salmon roe. Colloquially and at many traders, however, the term salmon caviar has become commonplace.

So, this red caviar is obtained from female salmon. It has a grain size of about 3-5 mm and is therefore significantly larger than caviar from sturgeon; caviar from Ketalachs even reaches a grain size of up to 9mm. Salmon caviar, like the meat of salmon, is naturally colored orange to red. If you are looking for a place to buy red caviar in Canada, you have already found it!

But before you buy it, we want you to learn more about this precious product. 

How long does caviar last?

Because fresh caviar is refined with salt, its shelf life is also extended. Vacuum-packed, caviar red can be kept for up to eight weeks. If it is additionally pasteurized, the shelf life increases to three months. Opened in the coldest part of the refrigerator in the zero-degree zone, it can be kept for a maximum of three days. The temperature must never fall below -4 degrees Celsius, as consistency and taste change in this case. Freezing should also be avoided at all costs: if done unprofessionally, it can damage the structure of red caviar.

What goes best with the red caviar?

According to nutritionists, caviar and fragrant herbs such as dill, parsley, and basil are ideal combinations. Salad leaves and arugula are also suitable. These products contain vegetable enzymes that promote the breakdown of the most useful fats in caviar. Salmon caviar is perfectly combined with light quark, sour cream, and eggs. 

With its unique, sweet-salty taste, red caviar can be an excellent addition to many dishes. It can also be combined with various drinks. Champagne, Burgundy white, and dry wines such as Chablis or other Chardonnay grapes are particularly recommended. Of course, vodka should not be missing from this list.

When choosing products to accompany Ikura, it is important to choose those that do not have a pronounced taste. Otherwise, the taste of this delicacy will be lost in the dish, although it should dominate and give real pleasure. For example, caviar should not be combined with meat, spicy products, sweets, and fruits.
