Whitefish roe is a premium delicacy that is highly prized for its unique flavour, delicate texture, and nutritional benefits. Sourced from the pristine waters of the Great Lakes region, this caviar-like product is made from the eggs of whitefish, which are carefully hand-selected and processed using traditional methods.

The result is a vibrant, glossy roe that boasts a clean, briny taste and a satisfying “pop” when eaten. It’s perfect for adding a touch of elegance to any meal or occasion, whether you’re entertaining guests or simply indulging in a gourmet treat. Serve it on a blini or crostini with crème fraîche or top it on sushi, salads or pasta for an elevated touch.

Not only is whitefish roe a decadent treat for the taste buds but it’s also loaded with nutrients. It is an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, including omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for heart health, brain function and overall well-being.
