Ossetra has long been hailed as one of the most coveted varieties of caviar since it was originally found in the Caspian Sea. Ossetra sturgeon fishlings (otherwise known as the Acipenser guldenstadtii) have since been relocated to aquaculture farms where they’re now sustainably raised and farmed. These delightfully firm roe are best known for their nutty flavor and dark color—ranging from black to dark gray with flecks of gold and jade. The pleasing pop and rich, bold sea flavors hold up beautifully to a variety of foods, including heavy creams, sauces, and meat dishes. This culinary versatility gives it universal appeal and makes it one of the most popular caviars in the world today.
