National Caviar Day

Today is National Caviar Day! Caviar is processed, salted fish roe (otherwise known as fish eggs). The eggs are tiny, round, and usually black in color, but there are also orange and red varieties. Although it may seem like a slightly odd thing to eat, caviar was once reserved strictly for royalty. Today, it is still considered a delicacy all over the world.

Many people use the term “caviar” to describe any kind of fish egg, but true caviar must come from sturgeon—a group of about 25 species of fish. Some examples of sturgeon are beluga, osetra, and sevruga. These particular fish produce some of the finest varieties of caviar in the world.

Caviar is quite salty so it is usually enjoyed plain, but it can also be used to garnish certain dishes. If you’re feeling adventurous, try some today! You can usually find caviar at specialty food stores. Otherwise, just head to a local seafood restaurant or grill a nice piece of fish to celebrate National Caviar Day. Bon appétit!

Oh I love it!!!  My dad used to get the red kind AND the black kind and we'd have it with fresh rye bread... daddy/daughter bonding over caviar... and sometimes some anchovies and sardines, too!  I miss him :(
