A distinctive fish roe unlike any other offered here, golden whitefish caviar is harvested from domestic whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis) sourced from the Great Lakes region of the United States.

Golden whitefish caviar features small pearls with a bright golden-yellow color that is unique to this type of fish. These small pearls yield a satisfying crunchy texture that gives way to a sweet and mild flavor. A fresh, clean finish ends every bite.

Khavyar’s golden whitefish caviar is sustainably sourced from wild-caught lake whitefish in the United States. These lake whitefish are plentiful in North American freshwater habitats, and can be found in all five of the Great Lakes, allowing them to be responsibly fished without negative environmental impact.

It is advisable to gently rinse golden whitefish caviar before serving to prevent any transfer of color. Using a fine strainer, gently rinse the caviar pearls with cold water. Allow to drain, shaking the strainer slightly, before turning the contents out onto some folded paper towels. Gently pat dry. As each pearl is delicate, be sure to avoid using pressure that could damage the roe. Because of its bright, enticing color, and slightly crunchy texture, golden whitefish caviar makes a striking garnish for soups or even shrimp-topped toast points.
