Salmon roe is the reddish-orange, slightly transparent egg mass found inside the bellies of female salmon. They can vary in size from five millimeters (sockeye salmon roe) to around one centimeter (chum salmon roe), depending on the species. Good-quality salmon roe has a shiny appearance and firm texture and contains a lot of dietary proteins, vitamins, and essential omega-3 fatty acids. The cured salmon roe product is known by many times, including ikura, ikura salmon roe, or simply red caviar.
