Sweden Lumpfish Black Caviar - Imported from Sweden, the Lumpfish Caviar (species Cyclopterus Lumpus) is one of our most versatile non-sturgeon caviar products. Due to its colour and taste, it’s an excellent alternative to some of the pricier Caspian Sea varieties. Sustainably farmed in Sweden, lumpish grains (eggs) are firm, small-sized, shiny and dark.
The grains are black with a crunchy, salty flavor with subtle spicy undertones. Like many non-sturgeon caviars, Lumpfish Caviar is high in protein and an excellent source of Omega 3-fatty acids.
Lumpfish Caviar is a perfect addition to any gourmet meal—use it as a delectable substitute in recipes calling for the more traditional caviars or roes. Enjoy it standalone with some crackers or bread. It also makes an excellent garnish- for egg dishes, pastas and tapas, and is perfect alongside sushi.
Caviar Storage and Preservation:
- Caviar should only opened right before it will be consumed.
- Unopened caviar can be refrigerated for 15-20 days.
- Refrigerate the caviar but do not freeze (it may burst the eggs).
- Store fresh caviar at 26-34 degrees Fahrenheit. Caviar stored at this temperature can last 1-4 weeks and the high-oil content protects it from freezing at this temperature.
- If you are unsure of the temperature of your refrigerator, you can store the caviar in the fridge packed in ice (changing the ice as it melts).
Opened caviar should be tightly covered with plastic wrap and eaten within 1-2 days.
