Trick or Treat: Caviar recipes for Halloween
It’s Halloween month! and what are you cooking? Pumpkins? We all love pumpkins for Halloween but have you ever tried Caviar? Yes! This year take a chance for trying new recipes and surprise your family, friends, or guests. Caviar is one of the top delicacies in the world, some people think Caviar can only be eaten at fancy restaurants but this is a huge myth. All types of Caviar – Imported or domestic- are available to shop online and be delivered to your home. So, for this Halloween make sure to use Caviar in your recipes. There’s no excuse!
Before going ahead with the recipe’s ideas, let’s remember which types of Caviar exist so you can decide which one you would like to try for this event. Caviar is eggs or roe collected from the sturgeon family, traditionally sourced from the Caspian and Black Seas. There are many types of Caviar but you should know there are two main categories: Imported and Domestic. When Caviar comes from its original source in Europe this product is Imported Caviar and its most recognized types are: Ossetra, Beluga and Kaluga. When Caviar is farmed and produced in the United States, it is called Domestic Caviar. This type of Caviar is known for being more affordable without losing the Caviar experience. Try Paddlefish Caviar or Hackleback Caviar and find it out for yourself. At last, there’s still one more option: Fish Roe. When we say roe, we are referring to all unfertilized eggs collected from marine animals. Salmon roe and the roe from whitefish, trout, cod, red caviar, ikura, and tobiko, etc. are considered “Caviar substitutes” and not Caviar. No matter which type of Caviar you choose, they’re all available in our online store. Visit House of Caviar and discover our selection of the greatest quality Caviar picked especially for you!
