Tobiko red, black, wasabi from $11.89. Modern Japanese cuisine and especially different sushi types are growing rapidly in popularity in the Western world. An inherent ingredient in many types of sushi is Tobiko. Tobiko is the Japanese name of the tropical Flying Fish Roe. It is a roe with remarkably tiny egg grains, measuring less than 1mm in diameter. This roe is characterized by a crunchy and firm texture that adds an element of interest to many sushi rolls. Another important quality of this product is its stability, which allows it to keep its form and texture even after being defrosted, unlike the traditional and much more expensive caviar types. This is truly a democratic people food – or, at any rate, food garnish.
The natural color of the Flying fish caviar is golden to light orange, but it comes in a variety of flavors. These flavors are added with natural ingredients that also give Flying Fish caviar its vivid colors:
There is no reason to limit the use of Tobiko to sushi and other Japanese cuisine alone; international cuisine is full of famous chefs using this versatile product in truly stunning ways. It makes an excellent garnish for all the classic and traditional dishes of continental cuisine, as well as a fitting supplement to the fast-growing variety of fusion cuisine dishes. Any seafood dish, cold or cooked, makes the perfect setting for the vibrant embellishment of Flying Fish caviar!
Tobiko caviar is also a favorite among famous chefs and top catering companies for its low price, which makes it the perfect product to cater to large events and parties.
In addition to its attractive appearance and incredibly low price, Tobiko is also respected for its nutritious characteristics. As a seafood product, it is very rich in wholesome omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that are of key importance to the human body. The Malossol preparation method adds only a small amount of sea salt to the product, emphasizing its natural flavor. Some people may point out that this roe is also rich in cholesterol, but the truth is that Tobiko is a delicacy, and when enjoyed in appropriate serving sizes supplies such a negligible quantity of cholesterol that it cannot outweigh the health benefits Tobiko also provides.
We would like to emphasize that the incredibly low price of the Tobiko caviar not only makes it generally accessible to the public, but also makes it the perfect tool for a creative chef or party planner.
We hope that Marky's Gourmet Store will be your first and only choice for where to buy Tobiko.
