Beluga hybrid is a variety of caviar obtained a hybrid of two sturgeon species, combining the rapid maturation of the sterlet and the rapid growth of the beluga. The taste of this caviar is tender, delicate, buttery, closer to the taste of beluga caviar.
Beluga caviar is the most expensive type of caviar.
As with most caviars, beluga is usually handled with a caviar spoon made of mother of pearl, bone, or other nonmetallic material, as metal utensils tend to impart an unwelcome metallic taste to the delicate roe. Beluga caviar is usually served by itself on toast, unlike other less expensive caviars that can be served in a variety of ways, including hollowed and cooked new potatoes , on a blini, or garnished with sour cream, crème fraîche, chopped onions, or minced hard boiled egg whites. These items can, however, be served with beluga as palate cleansers.
