Do You Know Capelin Roe?

- Jul 04, 2017 -

    When you go to the Japanese restaurant, you may often eat capelin roe. But do you know the information about it? Or do you know how to make it tastier?

    The capelin or caplin (Mallotus villosus) is a small forage fish of the smelt family found in the North Atlantic, North Pacific and Arctic oceans. In summer, it grazes on dense swarms of plankton  at the edge of the ice shelf. Larger capelin also eat a great deal of krill and other crustaceans.

    Capelin roe, we also call it masago. Capelin are part of the smelt family, so you will sometimes see this on menus called "smelt roe". Masago are smaller and colorful. Masago makes a really great garnish, especially for adding color to rolls, but I generally prefer to eat it in conjunction with something else rather than on its own. Masago is also cheaper than tobiko, so you might see some places offering "flying fish eggs" but actually using masago instead.

    Eating masago (capelin roe) as a part of a balanced diet can promote overall physical health. Brimming with omega-3 acids, protein, and Vitamins B and D, one spoonful of masago contains only 20 calories.

    Wild Icelandic capelin is a "best choice" for masago, as the Icelandic fishery has the least bycatch and the most effective management practices.

    As the roe (eggs) of the small capelin fish, Masago is not only small, soft and orange, it’s also a versatile ingredient that’s easily incorporated into a variety of both Asian and Western appetizers and entrees.

    From rice to pasta to dips, sauces and more, this semi-crunchy roe gives your culinary creations a subtle fish flavor, with a hint of saltiness. All you have to do is mix it in or sprinkle it on top and you’re good to go.

    Fried rice can really hit the spot when you’re hungry, right? With a variety of ingredients you can mix in, you can make something new every time.
