caviar

Caviar is a food consisting of salt-cured roe of the wild sturgeon in the Caspian Sea and Black Sea. Caviar is considered a delicacy and is eaten as a garnish or a spread.
Caviar (also known as caviare; from Persian: خاویار‎, romanized: khâvyâr, lit. 'egg-bearing') is a food consisting of salt-cured roe of the family Acipenseridae. Caviar is considered a delicacy and is eaten as a garnish or a spread. Traditionally, the term caviar refers only to roe from wild sturgeon in the Caspian Sea and Black Sea (Beluga, Ossetra and Sevruga caviars). Depending on the country, caviar may also be used to describe the roe of other species of sturgeon or other fish such as salmon, steelhead, trout, lumpfish, whitefish, or carp. The roe can be "fresh" (non-pasteurized) or pasteurized, with pasteurization reducing its culinary and economic value.

    Recipe Bell Pepper Boats with Scallops, Bacon, Quail Egg, Salmon Roe, and Grape Tomato

    You can consider this a sit-down appetizer, or perhaps a side for a fairly fancy meal. The recipe description is per person, simply multiply for more. This was a rather fun delight to create, something out of the ordinary. I’ve known for awhile that bacon goes with scallops, which goes with...

    Caviar - an acquired taste?

    [Mod.edit: posts moved to form a new topic (MG)] I've only ever eaten flying fish roe and salmon eggs, and I didn't like the salmon eggs. I have heard of expensive caviar like beluga, but never tried it. Is it good?
