This Coho (Silver) Salmon Ikura – salt cured salmon roe – has a deep red color and clean, rich flavor. Smaller egg size (around 2.5mm), with a light “pop” and mouthfeel. Medium to high salt finish and juicy.
Our Coho Salmon Ikura comes from wild, Salish Sea Coho (Silver) Salmon and is produced with a custom 2.6% brine, which preserves the clean flavor without adding too much sodium to your diet. All salmon roe takes salting differently depending on their size, these eggs taste “saltier” than our Chum roe, even though no additional salt was added to the recipe.
Salmon roe is a superfood which is very rich in omega 3 fatty acids, and good for brain development and immune systems, especially those of children. Sought by caviar lovers everywhere, salted wild salmon roe (Ikura) has become a prized delicacy.
