American Bowfin Caviar

Starting at $20.00

Product Description

Hailing from Louisiana, the indigenous bowfin (also known as Cajun caviar) is known as “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.

Caviar Grading Process

All the caviar offered by Browne Trading is graded by our Caviar Master, Richard Hall. Grading refers to the evaluation of the caviar’s tone (color), texture (firmness), and taste.
