Spoonbill (Paddlefish) Caviar
The Spoonbill is a wild freshwater sturgeon that thrives in the waters of the Mississippi and Tennessee rivers where it surface feeds using its paddled shaped nose to collect nutrient-rich food. Prized for its elegant flavor at a manageable price, this freshwater sturgeon roe exhibits many of the characteristics of its Caspian cousins. At first glance, it bears a striking resemblance to Sevruga for its size and color – and its rich, creamy flavor is reminiscent to that of the Osetra. The resulting spoonbill (paddlefish) caviar is quite delectable; rich robust, and creamy with small silvery pearls.
