What is Caviar?
Caviar, the most luxurious food of the world, is the eggs of the sturgeon fish. The caviar is after “Khaviar” in Farsi which means bearing eggs.
Caviar is normally being eaten raw or with boiled egg and chopped onions. Some others also eat small amounts of Caviar with special vegetables which are fragrant or toast bread and butter. Others prefer to eat Caviar cold and pure. Caviar is used as a garnish or an appetizer during the particular events, weddings and etc. Caviar is also a main part of the menu in many five star restaurants and hotels.
The Caspian Sea placed in the north part of Iran is famous as the largest source of Caviar throughout the world, supplying a large amount of the world’s Caviar. Each year a large number of sturgeon fishes are released in the Caspian Sea by Iran due to protect their growth.
