Mentaiko (Spicy Caviar)

Japanese spicy caviar

Have you ever eaten Spicy Caviar (Mentaiko) ?

Mentaiko is cod roe slowly marinated in chili pepper and salt.

Its spicy and rich flavor goes well with pasta, potato,

and especially rice, making it a favorite for putting inside Japanese rice balls (Onigiri).

My father gave me high-quality Mentaiko (absolutely expensive...)

Generally, we eat Mentaiko with something like rice,

but I like to eat it only, not with something.
