My Dad loved nothing better than scrambled eggs in the morning enfolded with salty chunks of SPAM.
Yup, that was his breakfast of choice, if given his druthers.
If he were still alive this Father’s Day, I’d change that up. I’d present him with pillowy scrambled eggs, all right. But topped with briny caviar instead.
I’m sure he’d be startled, thinking I’d lost my mind or was mortgaging my house to do so.
Nope, on both accounts.
Instead, I’d tell him that Southern California-based Anderson Seafoods provided me with a sample to try. The roe is from American Lake Sturgeon. The teeny-tiny, ebony-charcoal-hued eggs have a nice pop when you bite into them. At $38 for a 1-ounce jar, it’s relatively affordable, too, as far as caviar goes, especially because it takes only a smidgeon to make anything more luxurious tasting.
The company offers an array of fresh and frozen seafood, all of which can be delivered to your door overnight.
CONTEST: One lucky Food Gal reader will win a chance to sample $300 worth of seafood of your choice, courtesy of Anderson Seafoods. Entries, limited to those in the continental United States, will be accepted through 6 p.m. PST June 13. The winner will be announced June 14.
