Red Caviar Tips for Beginners
So what is salmon roe, and how do you use it in recipes?
What is salmon roe?
Salmon roe or red caviar is eggs harvested from female salmon. They are typically orangish-red in color, small to medium in size, and less expensive than black caviar, but what makes them really stand out is the freshness, texture, and flavor that leaves everyone wanting for more.
When you buy red caviar, you can tell if it is fresh or not by the crisp pop it makes when you press it against the roof of the mouth.
Red caviar nutrition and benefits
Red caviar is low in calories (only about 40 calories per serving) and high in protein and Vitamin B12 with no trans fats, which makes it a great addition to a healthy diet. It is also one of the richest sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA and EPA, which are essential for brain and eye development in children and also support the proper functioning of the heart and immune system. A deficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids can lead to several problems such as heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression.

How to eat salmon roe
If you a true red caviar fan like us, you may like to have it just plain as a snack! But if you are new to it and wondering how to eat salmon roe for maximum taste and enjoyment, we have a few suggestions for you.
Ikura salmon roe is best served as an appetizer over buttered toast or crackers like in the video below. If you want to make it slightly more interesting, fill some red caviar in tiny pastry cups for an eye-catching hors d’oeuvre at your next party.
You can also pair red caviar with blinis (a traditional Russian pancake made with wheat or buckwheat flour), sour cream, and chives or use it as garnish for scrambled eggs if you are in the mood for indulgence. If you love sushi, you can make gunkan sushi by wrapping nori (seaweed pressed and dried into a thin strip) around rice and topping it with ikura salmon roe.
As with other types of caviar, remember to avoid using metal spoons and bowls to serve red caviar. Use only a plastic or wood spoon to scoop out the pearls from your can. Metal can break down the red caviar pearls or interact with it, changing the taste negatively.
