What type of this caviar:
Caviar is the salt-cured roe (eggs) of sturgeon.
Even though the word caviar is commonly used to refer to the salt-cured eggs from other fish (salmon, paddlefish, etc) that is NOT caviar. True caviar can only come from one of the 27 species of sturgeon belonging to the Acipenseridae family as stated in the Codex Alimentarius (FAO).
Polanco Baerii Caviar is without a doubt one of the most complex products available worldwide, full of character with rich nutty buttery undertones designed for the expert palette. Matured like a fine wine in 2kg mother tins for 2 to 4 months before its final repacking just before delivery to our customers. Butter and nut flavors of a caviar perfectly matured in original tins. Elegance and power.
How should we eat with caviar:
We produce a high-quality caviar and therefore we recommend to enjoy Polanco on its own in order to appreciate the complexity and subtleties of its flavor.
However, if the occasion calls for a more elaborated recipe here you have some ingredients that go along very well with Polanco:
- Traditional. Blinis and crème fraiche topped with a dollop of caviar.
- Potatoes. Caviar pairs perfectly with all types of potatoes preparations. Baked, mashed, grilled, fried, you name it!
- Eggs. Boiled, scrambled or poached. There are a dozen different ways to cook an egg and guess what! All of them go perfectly with a touch of Polanco.
As a rule of thumb, high quality caviar like Polanco is best paired with subtle ingredients in order not to distract our taste buds and allowing them to perceive Polanco’s full flavor as it develops in your mouth.
How should we store our caviar:
Caviar is a fresh, highly perishable product and needs to be stored properly in order not to lose its properties. Always keep your Polanco tin in the coldest part of your refrigerator which is normally close to the cold air vent. Never in the freezer!
Ideal storage temperature is between -4 and +4 °C (25 – 39 ° F). Polanco is packed in vacumm-sealed tins and kept under the right temperature it can last up to 3 months (check label for “best before” date) in your refrigerator. Once opened you should finish the tin within 48 hs.
Avaiable in 3 sizes (10g, 30g and 50g).
