Hailing from Louisiana, the indigenous bowfin (also known as Cajun caviar) is known as “Choupique” and has been popular in Cajun cooking since the first settlers arrived. Though not a sturgeon, this ancient species of freshwater fish produces a robust and distinct roe that has gained popularity in caviar circles due to its affordable price and high quality. Bowfin caviar is wonderful as a garnish, appetizer, or even in baked preparations where the roe will turn to a red color once cooked.
