Japanese cuisine uses tobiko roe, which is the roe of flying fish. It has a golden colour, a salty-sweet flavour, and a crunchy texture that make it unique. These tiny raw fish eggs are one of the most sought-after sushi roes and are often garnished or added as a decorative element for rolls, such as California rolls. As sashimi, they are equally delicious.
Yuzu Tobiko is a translucent, yellow spherical egg that resembles salmon roe but is smaller. Each egg is approximately 1 mm across, and the peel is so thick it is enjoyable to chew on and to burst. Bllack roes are mixed with squid ink, yellow is dyed with Yuzu citrus, red is tinted with beet juice and green roes are flavoured with wasabi.
Yuzu and citrus extract are among the natural ingredients used in Yellow Tobiko. With a delicious flavour and a delicious crunch, it is a delicious topping for sushi. Try it if you haven’t yet! Each box contains 500grams of Tobiko Yuzu.
In Japanese cuisine, tobiko adorns sushi rolls and sashimi from all over the food republic. A ripe, unfertilized egg appears much like a tiny, transparent pearl of red-orange colour. The roe is salt-cured after harvesting to preserve it, giving tobiko a light taste that’s both salty and sweet. This is perfect for making sushi rolls at home, or for adding a touch of elegance to a meal.
