All of our caviar are a truly wonderful experience and come highly recommended by our team.

Ikura King Salmon Caviar Roe

Our King Salmon Ikura comes from wild, Salish Sea King (Chinook) Salmon. These eggs have a vibrant red color, a clean flavor, and light “pop”.  Medium to high salty finish with a medium dry or sticky consistency make these perfect on their own, by the spoonful, or added to your favorite rice dish.

Ikura PinK salmon Caviar Roe

Our Pink Salmon Ikura comes from wild, Salish Sea Pink Salmon and is produced with a custom 2.6% brine, which preserves the clean flavor without adding too much sodium to your diet. Pink Salmon eggs are slightly smaller with a beautiful orange color. Their slightly juicy consistency along with medium to high salt flavor  and crisp “pop” make them delicious on their own and ideal for the ‘hors d’oeuvres table.

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!
