This King Ikura – salt cured salmon roe – has a bright, red-orange color and clean, salty flavor. Smaller egg size (around 2.5mm), with a very light “pop” and mouthfeel. These eggs have a higher salt finish and would go very well with a soft cheese or on top of a sushi roll.
Our King Salmon Ikura comes from wild, Salish Sea King (Chinook) Salmon and is produced with a custom 2.6% brine, which preserves the clean flavor without adding too much sodium to your diet.
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.
