Paddlefish is a close cousin to the sturgeon that produces a roe similar to traditional caviar that is relished by adventurous chefs and curious connoisseurs. After many years of research, our sourcing experts have finally found a wild paddlefish caviar worthy of the Petrossian name!
Our century of experience with caviar has given us the skill and savoir-faire to coax a bold and briny taste from these small, light-to-dark grey grains. A wonderful dollop on blinis, tiny potatoes or as a garnish on canapés or smoked fish, Chataluga caviar is sure to delight.
