Perla

Siberian Oscietra Sturgeon Caviar

Request

Canaletto PERLA is a hybrid caviar obtained from a cross-breed between the Russian sturgeon known as Oscietra (Acipenser Gueldensteadtii) and the Siberian one (Acipenser Baerii).

It is a medium-large-grained caviar with egg size up to 3,0 mm.

Very fine, processed with the traditional “Malossol” method (meaning with low salt), the colour may vary from pearl grey to dark grey, may have golden shades.

Usually available from October to March.

PERLA caviar has a very delicate flavor with hints of hazelnut.

What does hybrid mean?

It is a caviar obtained by crossing two different species and combines the positive characteristics of both parents: an excellent quality of eggs with a nice range of colors but also a fast sexual maturity. In fact, these fish are mature after about 12 years.

Canaletto Perla caviar: a hybrid also known as GUBA or GU x BAE, where GU is the conventional abbreviation for Gueldensteadtii (or Russian sturgeon, osetra) and BAE identifies Baeri (or Siberian sturgeon).

The small eggs have the classic strength of Baeri and the delicate softness of Oscietra.

Recommended recipe

Spaghetti with Canaletto Caviar

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 320 gr of Spaghetti
  • 4 tablespoons of Canaletto Caviar
  • 160 gr of Butter

Method

Boil the water in the pot, salt it once boiling and add the spaghetti, following the cooking time indicated on the package. When they are ready, drain and sauté them in a pan (off the heat) with some of their cooking water, the butter and a grinding of pepper.

Once perfectly blended, plate up immediately and add a generous spoonful of caviar.

A suggestions: if you want to add an alcoholic touch, blend the spaghetti in a pan – this time on the fire – with a glass of vodka: the alcohol will evaporate and leave a heady taste!

Now have a seat and… Enjoy your meal!
