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 or in the Minneapolis area at Coastal Seafoods

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.
