On our last trip to Tehran, we bought the famous Iranian Beluga Caviar. The best quality caviar which is mostly found in the Caspian Sea. Caviar consists of eggs of female fish; sturgeon with color from pale grey to dark black.
Caviar is a source of minerals and vitamins such as A, E, B6, B12 which boost your immune system.
I believe there are a few pleasures in life that are worth paying for at least once.
How to Serve Caviar and Champagne:
And not eating it wrong way:
– Caviar should be serve cold and NEVER freeze it.
– Never use metal spoon, it ruined the taste. There is special pearl spoon for it or you can use ceramic spoon.
– Also it’s better to serve with crackers to enhance the flavor along with minced onion, shredded egg and butter.
– When it is open, serve the whole container as it spoils quickly.
When it comes to tasting caviar, the best way is to eat it alone, a small spoonful and take a scent. Do not chew it just try to mash eggs with your tongue, it has unique sea like explosion of flavors.
The good quality caviar does not have strong fishy smell as some people say.
Also we have a classic way of tasting caviar with crackers, which is with minced onion, shredded egg and butter.
Champagne and caviar are great pairing .
