fish's peas: capelin roe tips

This week's word of the week is pea and the one I'm thinking of is not green.

Capelin Caviar

Black or bright pink in color, Capelin Caviar is the roe from a small variety of fish that is a member of the smelt family. Referred to as "masago" in Japan, Capelin roe is commonly sought for use as a topping in a variety of sushi recipes. Capelin Caviar is typically harvested from fish found in the waters off Canada, Newfoundland, and Iceland. Capelin fish range in size from 7 to 9 inches in length and provide roe that is generally considered as a lower grade Caviar.
