Return to all

– January 2, 2021 –

We are all familiar with the recognizable shiny orange color of the popular sushi ingredient, salmon roe. Yamame (freshwater cherry trout) is a sibling fish of salmon and spends its entire life in fresh water. Its roe is even more distinct with a golden yellow color. While it is a bit surprising to see on sushi, know that it is quite a treat as it is extremely rare with a delicate taste that has no substitute.
