Tobiko / Red Roe of Flying Fish / 1 Oz.
Fish roe are the fully ripened eggs of many types of fish, including sturgeon, salmon, and herring.
Tobiko is a Japanese word that essentially means Fish roe/eggs that are particularly harvested from flying fish.
Flying fish can’t actually fly, they only leap out of the water and then go back into the sea.
While there are plenty of species of flying fish out there, tobiko is mostly obtained from the Japanese flying fish.
Naturally, it is often associated with Japanese cuisine. It can be used in making sushi and it also makes for a gorgeous and colorful garnish for dishes.
