What is Tobiko Caviar? All about this Japanese delicacy

What is Tobiko Caviar? All about this Japanese delicacy
Tobiko caviar is made from special flying fish roe, and it’s a great substitute for more expensive caviar. Although tobiko has a slightly different taste than sturgeon caviar, it’s known as Japanese caviar. Usually, it is very small (1mm in diameter), and is rich in protein, omega 3- fatty acids, and other nutrients.
Whether you’ve tried caviar before or not, tobiko is completely different. And, naturally, you should try it if you have the opportunity. The good news is that tobiko is a more affordable option than other types of caviar. In Caviar Lover you’ll spend around $20 for 4 oz of tobiko fish roe.

You’ll also see a wide range of colors when shopping around for tobiko. Aside from the most common bright red-orange color, look out for wasabi-tinted green and squid-ink black tobiko varieties.
