The American Paddlefish is a relative of the Sturgeon family and indigenous to the Mississippi River basin. Paddlefish caviar is one of the most popular types of caviar. The Paddlefish or Mississippi Paddlefish or Spoonbill is a large freshwater fish and has a remarkable paddle-like snout used to locate zooplankton, and it produces a large quantity of roe. This fish can become 30 years old, at which age it can weigh up to 30 kg.
Despite the size of an adult Paddlefish, its caviar pearls are small in size and are platinum grey in color, with a soft shell that melts tenderly in your mouth, washing the palate with a delicate balance of salinity, and buttery earthiness.
The affordable price of this American caviar may make this an attractive choice for a first-timer, but this top-quality caviar can be used in a variety of culinary applications and dishes, as the flavor is extremely creamy and the pearls are attractive and glisten and impress with their nice platinum aura.
Enjoy the paddlefish caviar with cold vodka, dry white wine or a glass of champagne.
