How To Taste Ikura Caviar
Ikura caviar can be used as a garnish to add a pop to your dish or it can be eaten alone. Top your rice with ikura and light soy sauce for an ikura don. It is commonly served with toast points, crackers and bread. If you’re new to eating ikura, you might like to try it with a soft cheese (like cream cheese or brie) on a cracker. We put ikura on everything from pastas, dips, eggs, and chips!
