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!

​Russian Ossetra Caviar

​Russian Ossetra Caviar

Everything you need to know about Russian Ossetra caviar

Russian Ossetra caviar is one of the most desired caviars in the world, prized for its rich, nutty flavor and sensuously buttery texture on the tongue. Russian Ossetra Caviar has served as the centerpiece at sophisticated gatherings for centuries, with discerning epicureans going to great lengths to indulge their taste for this delicacy. Overfishing once threatened the availability of this delightful taste treat, but sustainable farming methods have renewed the Ossetra sturgeon population, ensuring the supply of this high quality caviar for future generations. House of Caviar and Fine Foods makes Russian Ossetra and other exceptional caviars available through online purchasing, so discriminating connoisseurs around the world can enjoy the finest caviar at their table.

Where does Russian Ossetra Caviar come from?

The highest quality gourmet caviars are sourced from Beluga, Ossetra and Sevruga sturgeon fish. Russian Ossetra Caviar is obtained from the Ossetra sturgeon, which originated in the icy waters of the Caspian Sea. Ossetra sturgeon are slightly smaller than Beluga sturgeon and typically grow to around 10 feet in length, weighing between 50 and 500 pounds at maturity. They begin producing roe at fifteen years of age and can live up to 50 years. Ossetra Caviar once came exclusively from wild sturgeon, but overfishing began to threaten the extinction of the Ossetra sturgeon population. More sustainable methods of farming sturgeon were developed, and the highest quality Ossetra Caviar is now harvested in Russia and Iran from sturgeons sustainably raised in wild river fields and aquacultures.

Types of Russian Ossetra Caviar

Russian Ossetra caviar (also known as Aestra, Oscietra, and Ossetra) has medium sized, succulent pearls that vary in color from dark brown to a light pewter grey. It is one of the most exclusive caviars, second only to Beluga caviar. Some devoted fans even prefer Ossetra caviar to Beluga caviar, considering its salty, succulently rich taste as the most desirable. There are several grades of Russian Ossetra caviar available today. Ossetra caviar price is determined by the quality of grade and exclusivity of the caviar.

Golden Imperial Russian Ossetra Caviar is the most prized variety of this delicacy, with large elegant grains that are a distinctively mellow light golden shade. Its nutty, buttery taste, delicate pop, and rich, creamy texture make it instantly recognizable by caviar connoisseurs.

Crown Russian Ossetra Caviar has large brown grains with a remarkably nutty flavor and firm, juicy texture. A perennial favorite among caviar aficionados, Crown Russian has less than 3% salt content, marking it as a true “Malossol” variety.

Classic Russian Ossetra Caviar has medium sized globes with a firm texture that vary in color from medium to dark brown. This is the most affordable Russian Ossetra caviar, making it the perfect entry for those just venturing into Russian caviars.

Serving Russian Ossetra Caviar

For the best experience, Russian Ossetra caviar should be stored at in the coldest part of the refrigerator (26 to 32 degrees), and never frozen, as freezing temperatures may cause the pearls to burst. Discerning connoisseurs traditionally use mother of pearl spoons and dishes for serving caviar, because silver and metal service can impart a metallic taste to this gourmet delight. Russian Ossetra Caviar is often served with blinis and crème fraische, or enjoyed directly off the spoon by connoisseurs who wish to enjoy the taste and texture of the caviar in its virgin state.
