Bowfin Caviar

Hailing from Louisiana, the indigenous Bowfin (also known as Cajun Caviar) is known there by its Cajun name of “Choupique” and has been popular in Cajun cooking since the first settlers arrived.

Though not a sturgeon, this ancient species of freshwater fish produces a robust and distinct roe that has gained popularity in caviar circles due to its affordable price and high quality.

Bowfin caviar is wonderful as a garnish, appetizer or even in baked preparations where the roe will turn to a red color once cooked.
