Salmon roe, called Ikura in Japan, is highly prized by caviar lovers around the world. Deep orange with a big pop. This red-orange roe comes from the most prized Alaskan Pacific "Chum" salmon. Alaskan salmon, known worldwide, travel to the sea after hatching and later return to their native fresh water rivers to spawn. They produce large red eggs because of that time spent in salt water and the diet it provides. Chinook and Coho salmon were also transplanted from the Pacific Northwest to the Great Lakes some 30 years ago. These hatchery-raised fish produce large orange eggs due to their exclusive freshwater diet while retaining the intense salmon flavor.
