American Hackleback Sturgeon Caviar is dark and firm with a very mild, subtle flavor. Enjoy with warm blinis and creme fraiche or on top of creamy scrambled eggs.
The pronounced flavor and glistening black eggs with hints of emeralds and gold make Hackleback our most popular domestic sturgeon caviar.
It’s indigenous to the Missouri and Mississippi river areas. American sand sturgeons (also known as hackleback, shovelnose, or switch tail) are faster growing than most other species, reaching about 38″ at full maturity. Being harvested from the world’s smallest sturgeon, this caviar is small and firm with all the characteristics and tastes of the classic wild sturgeon.
Being the only commercially fished sturgeon in the United States, Hackleback is the last American wild caviar. A very nice, wild-caught U.S. product.
