About Smelt Roe Edit
Smelt, or capelin roe, is a popular item in sushi restaurants, though the meat of the fish itself is rarely used. Some restaurants serve flavored varieties of masago, distinguished by their different colors. The roe is very crunchy and reddish orange in color.
Eating Sustainably Edit
|The best choice for masago is smelt roe from Iceland.|
|A good alternative option is Canadian smelt roe.|
