Caviar Recipe

Updated on September 28, 2012

It is termed as a luxury food as it costs between $8000-$16000 per kg, depending on the flavour, colour, size and consistency of the salt cured egg masses. One may wonder why spend a whooping 8 thousand dollars on these eggs, but once you savour a bite of caviar, you would not mind spending any amount to get another bite of it.


There are basically four varieties of caviar namely Servuga, Sterlet, Ossetra, and Beluga. Caviar has been a part of Middle Eastern and diet since prehistoric times.
