This Caviar ~ the roe of Siberian sturgeon which are sustainably farm raised at the Mote Marine in Florida.( see more in our Artisan section below) The caviar Siberian sturgeon is deep brown to medium black in color with medium sized firm eggs. Siberian caviar has a naturally nutty taste and some even say it has a mild hint of shitake mushroom. The finish is buttery, smooth and earthy with just a taste of a sea breeze.
This is an excellent ‘middle tier’ caviar coming from the Bareii species of sturgeon and is an excellent choice for a celebration in your home! Serve with crisp champagne or a dry white wine. Ice cold vodka is also a very traditional paring. Enjoy well chilled straight from a (non metalic) spoon or serve on traditional blinis or small potatoes with creme fraiche. 1 oz jar ( 28 g)

Serve well chilled caviar either in a glass container surrounded by crushed ice ( a shrimp cocktail glass works well if you do not have a traditional caviar server) Serve with a horn, mother of pearl spoon ( any non metallic spoon will be just fine) and serve with dry champagne, dry white wine or ice Cold vodka. The nutty taste of this Siberian sturgeon pairs very well with small roasted potatoes and creme fraiche ( a common Russian paring) ENJOY!
