1. Salmon Roe is not a caviar
Alright sushi fans, let’s get one thing straight. The salmon roe that you usually see in the sushi does not belong to the caviar category. There are more or less twenty-six sturgeon species that are used to make caviars and salmon is not on the list.
2. Caviar can last for a month
You read that right because caviars don’t have a one-day expiration date. With the proper preservation, you can surely enjoy fresh caviars for at least a month. All you need to do is put it in the refrigerator near the freezer. It needs to be cold enough to preserve it but not to make it frozen.
