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!

Raise the bar on your next recipe by adding caviar.

Caviar is a delicacy that has evaded the masses for some time, but more alternatives to the black gold found in the Caspian Sea are allowing people to either forego the imported pearls and enjoy domestic sources of caviar from different fish such as salmon, trout, flying fish, etc. or try both the classic delicacies and the American varieties.

Purists hold that caviar should only be served on toast points or unsalted crackers in order to allow the taste and texture to stand out as the star of the plate. They would then follow up their bite with a straight shot of frozen vodka. Others who are not strict about their caviar eating experience enjoy adding a few extras to their caviar such as crème fraiche, lemon wedges, minced onion, and more while accompanying their morsels with champagne.

Once you have tried caviar in its simplest form, perhaps you may be interested in seeing it in a supporting role amongst other components to make up an appetizer. Chefs have experimented with ways to cook with caviar, adding it to dishes to capitalize on distinct flavors in an effort to create culinary masterpieces. Some are masterfully complicated and others are perfect for looking fancy without breaking a sweat or the bank.

This appetizer/first course is decadent and rich with ingredients like heavy cream, milk, crab meat, truffle oil, and of course caviar.
