Whitefish Roe/Sikrom

Coregonus clupeaformis

Whitefish Roe comes from lake whitefish, (Coregonus clupeaformis), taken from the cold clear waters of Canada during the spawn season. Whitefish roe is also referred to as Sikrom. Whitefish Roe is collected October-November of each spawning season. Only the best eggs are saved during this short season and as a Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) approved ready to eat operation rigid quality and hygiene measures are maintained as part of the Presteve Foods QMP/HACCP plan.

Whitefish produce a golden color Roe. Presteve Foods have also developed two color added varieties in red and in black. For this color added variety we us the same quality Roe, blended with natural USFDA & CFIA colorings that offer the discerning customer greater variety with beautiful eye appeal. The eggs are small, grained and very firm which gives a very nice crunchy texture. The taste is mild and very pleasant. Whitefish Roe is excellent on crackers, but also add flavor to a wide variety of foods. Add it to sauces and spreads, or use a garnish for hors d’oeuvre, salads and fish dishes.
