Bowfin Caviar

Hailing from Louisiana, the indigenous Bowfin is known there by its Cajun name of “Choupique” and has been popular in Cajun cooking since the first settlers arrived there. 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 low price and high quality and is often called “Cajun Caviar”. Bowfin caviar is wonderful as a garnish, appetizer or even in baked preparations where the roe will turn to a red color once cooked.
