Product Description 

Hackleback (a.k.a. shovelnose) is the last wild caught sturgeon caviar in North America. Being the world's smallest sturgeon, Hackleback produces a small caviar that is almost jet black in color. It makes up for its smaller size with a very pleasing firm texture and clean, mild flavor.

You can enjoy Hackleback on a blini with a small dollop of crème fraiche. It is also common to see Hackleback caviar being enjoy atop Maine oysters. A small amount of caviar placed gently on a freshly shucked oyster makes for a very enjoyable bite.

Hackleback, a great first time caviar

If you are new to the world of caviar we think Hackleback is a great choice. 

Compared to other sturgeon caviar out there, Hackleback is very affordable. You will not break the bank with this caviar but you will still get the true high quality caviar experience. 

Again, the quality of Hackleback is high. While it is common to pair Hackleback with a blini or creme fraiche, you could eat this caviar right off a spoon and still enjoy it immensely. 

Of course, you pay for what you get. If you are looking for a mind blowing caviar that you could eat right off of a mother of pearl spoon and it melts on your tongue like butter, then you may want to look at our Osetra Caviar. If you are looking for a great value and equally good quality, then definitely consider this American caught offering.

    "My whole family absolutely loves the local seafood delivery service at SoPo Seafood. The food is delicious, fresh, and super easy to cook, and the employees are so so nice and accommodating. And, possibly the best outcome for us since we started ordering from SoPo Seafood, our kids now LOVE seafood."

    "I can’t say enough about SoPo Seafood. We have been customers from the start. Not only do they deliver they deliver on freshness and quality in spades. They live safe distancing and leave our orders in our garage as asked. Blood veins in the fish? Nope! SoPo delivers clean, ready-to-cook deliciousness. Oh and they support Maine fishermen I don’t see us changing our fishmongers anytime soon. Keep at it SoPo!"
