Masago is a popular type of roe that comes from the capelin fish (Mallotus villosus), which is a member of the smelt family. These small orange eggs are used in a variety of sushi rolls to add an additional “pop” of color and ocean-fresh flavor. They also add a little bit of crunch. In sushi bars, masago is used commonly as a substitute for the more expensive and traditional tobiko (flying fish roe). Aside from sushi applications, masago may also be enjoyed on toast, as a garnish for oysters, or in sauces and pastas.
