Seafood producers, Royal Greenland, have confirmed secured listings for its salmon and lumpfish roe with Seahawk, Allen and Dey and Ritter Courivaud.
Randall Jennings, UK managing director of Royal Greenland said: "Lumpfish roe is a delicious alternative to caviar and has seen rising popularity as an accompaniment and garnish as the economy improves and an appetite for delicacies returns. Our red and black lumpfish roe adds visual interest and depth of flavour to the simplest of dishes while our fresh tasting salmon roe adds a vibrant pop of orange to entrées and canapés."
The roe has a delicate, slightly salty flavour which makes it a great alternative to caviar from sturgeon. The flavour is enhanced by the icy, crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean around Greenland where roe from wild lumpfish is harvested. Its salmon roe is delicately harvested from wild waters or aquacultures in Alaska, where the species develops a beautiful flavour in its habitat of clean arctic water.
The popularity of roe has grown over the last few years as Nordic influences have filtered through the UK with recipes focusing on high quality, native ingredients.
