Capelin Caviar

If you’ve ever tried sushi, you’ve most certainly tried Capelin caviar. Those bright beads of roe that grace the tops of your nigiri or neatly line the interior of your temaki. These tiny firm eggs add a delightful crunch to dishes and make an elegant topping or garnish to canapés and hors d'oeuvres trays. While the natural color of Capelin caviar is a light golden color, it is often dyed and flavored. Anything from black squid ink to spicy green wasabi adds gorgeous color and a fantastic flavor.

Popular in Japanese cuisine, Capelin caviar, also known as Masago, are the eggs from the Capelin fish. Sourced from the cold waters of the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, they are tiny in size and wonderfully crunchy. Often used as an alternative to Tobiko caviar, which is the roe of flying fish, they are only slightly smaller in size and less transparent. More economical in price than traditional Tobiko, it’s an excellent choice when hosting a large party or catering for a crowd.

Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids as well as a laundry list of essential vitamins and minerals, Masago is a delicious part of a healthy and well-rounded diet. Their tiny beads boast an ultra-firm envelope, giving them a wonderfully crunchy texture that can add dimension and interest to your recipes. Try adding them to both hot and cold salads, swirl them into pasta, risottos, and sauces, garnish your canapes, omelets, and hors d'oeuvres. The gastronomic possibilities of Capelin caviar are virtually limitless. Often found dyed and flavored, Capelin caviar is naturally a bright yellow color with a mild flavor profile, making them the perfect medium for flavoring. Using natural products like spicy wasabi, squid ink, beets, turmeric, and ginger, the color of the roe usually denotes the flavor it will have.
