Masago (Seasoned Capelin Roe) 1kg
Click for current price ➔
Want to add a little crunch to your sushi rolls? Inherently popular due to its widespread availability, Masago is a semi-crunchy roe derived from the Capelin fish – a member of the salmon family. Often compared to (and used in place of) the more expensive Tobikko (Flying Fish roe), low-calorie Masago has a subtle fish flavor with overtones of saltiness – the perfect partner to many varieties of delicately flavored white fish used in sushi making.
High in Omega-3 and other heart healthy nutrients, our fresh-frozen, Sashimi Grade Capelin Roe Masago is an inexpensive way to experiment with fish roe. Produced for us by Azuma foods in the United States, this premium roe is available year-round, and can be purchased in either 3 oz or 1 kg containers.
If esthetics are important to you, Masago is a great addition to your sushi making kit. Its vivid orange hue adds a splash of color when used for sushi rolls, or as part of a decorative, edible garnish. That crunchy texture can also make it a welcome break from firmer meats, and soft white sushi rice!
