Masago Caviar

$10.00 lb.


If you are a sushi lover, you might remember eating sushi with some tiny, dark eggs either topping or coating it. Those little dots of crunchy eggs are the Masago Caviar, which is a popular condiment in the Japanese cuisine!

Masago Caviar is made from the roe harvested from Capelin or smelt fish. It is then lightly cured with pure sea salt and given a natural colorant to turn its bright orange color to black.

What makes this caviar a great condiment is the way the eggs burst and crunch with every bite, which then produces a mild and slightly sweet flavor that makes every piece of sushi or nigiri more delightful!
