Korean Caviar

Russians love their caviar and vodka, but Koreans love caviar and soju. I hate soju though.

Anyway, super special delivery direct from Korea, some amazing korean caviar (spicy whitening roe). This small jar/package that houses about 30 sacs of roe is quite expensive and you can’t even get it in the US. Of course they sell whitening roe at supermarkets and some other japanese varieties but the flavor is completely different. Best served on hot rice with very thinly sliced scallions, sesame seeds and sesame oil. You can find these at Japanese and Korean supermarkets though it will not be good as the kinds they sell over in Asia it will still be delicious. Don’t be afraid to try it if you happen to see it around!

I slice it half way through on the tops of the sacs so that the scallions and oil can flavor the roe.

Sesame oil is a must. It’s like having a salad without olive oil if you forget to add this for the roe.
