Paddlefish Caviar (Spoonbill)
Starting at $64.00
Paddlefish caviar has gained popularity with fine dining consumers and has found its way into some of the nation’s top restaurants. Often referred to as the “American sturgeon” or “spoonbill”, it is harvested wild from tributaries of the Mississippi and Tennessee Rivers.
Prized for its elegant flavor at a manageable price, this caviar exhibits many of the characteristics of its Caspian cousins: consistent sizing of the eggs, a gray sheen, and a rich, smooth, creamy flavor. At first glance, it bears a striking resemblance to sevruga for its size and color – and a nutty flavor that is reminiscent of that of the Osetra.
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.
