Minnesota Caviar






Why pay a Benjamin Franklin or two an ounce for Beluga caviar imported from Russia when Herring caviar is available for $3 an ounce. Dockside fish market has been processing Lake Superior herring caviar since 2003 and sells it out of their Grand marais outpost http://docksidefishmarket.dreamhosters.com/index.shtml or in the Minneapolis area at Coastal Seafoods http://www.coastalseafoods.com/

While it looks very similar to the sushi topping Tobiko, it is actually the roe from the Lake Superior herring, a fish indigenous to Minnesota. It has a creamy texture but also pops with a buttery flavor reminiscent of the sea...Well maybe the Lake Superior sea. Dockside suggests putting it on a water cracker and using a light dollop of sour cream, thinly sliced red onions, and fresh lemon juice mixed in.
