It isn`t caviar, of course because it is practically unavailable here. But the one in stores is enough to caress your taste buds.
A week ago I bought a small can of salmon eggs after a long break. Yesterday I ran into discounted big cans with short expiry date, so I bought two. Now I am going to eat fish eggs for breakfast and supper for a few days. Nobody in my family will give a hand.
I prefer NOT to eat fish eggs...just my personal taste... I do like adult fish, though!
I first tried roe a few decades ago and loved it ever since.
I had a chance to try true caviar when I once came across Russians selling tins of it in the open air market. But somehow I didn`t decide to buy a tin though the price was affordable. I had heard beluga fish is on the edge of extinction.
IUCN classifies the beluga as critically endangered. It is a protected species listed in appendix III of the Bern Convention, and its trade is restricted under CITES appendix II. The Mediterranean population is strongly protected under appendix II of the Bern Convention, prohibiting any intentional killing of these fish. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service has banned imports of beluga caviar and other beluga products from the Caspian Sea since October 6, 2005, after listing beluga sturgeon under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.
