How to clean the caviar of pink salmon from the film at home?

Pink salmon caviar on white bread and butter

Yastyk - thin, but durable shell, inside which are eggs. Caviar, cleared from the bag-shell before salting, is considered the most qualitative, aristocratic looks, tasty and does not bitter.

There are the following ways to rid the grain of the film:

Using brine

I take 1 liter of clean filtered water, pour it into a saucepan and add 30 g of salt. I bring to a boil. I leave to cool to 40-50 ° C. The salmon caviar in the jar is lowered into the pan. Gently and slowly stir the whisk to knock. As the film rotates, it wraps around the whisk. Delete if necessary. After the eggs are separated from the yastik, I drain the brine through a colander. The remaining parts of the film are removed manually.

Fast manual way

Yastyk divided into several parts (no more than 6). Each piece slowly and gently knead. I do not make great efforts not to accidentally crush the seeds. When properly kneaded eggs without problems will separate from the films.

HELPFUL ADVICE! The cleaning method is effective for ripe caviar. The film in this case departs simply and quickly. If the product is not ripe, the method is ineffective.

Using a sieve and fork

In a saucepan with hot water (50-60 ° C), I lower the sieve with uncleaned eggs. Within 5-10 seconds I actively stir, gently picking up with a fork. The film is wound on the cutlery, and the grains remain at the bottom of the sieve.

HELPFUL ADVICE! Do not overdo caviar of pink salmon in hot water! This will cause the eggs to harden.

With the use of salt water and boiling water

Pour the eggs with salt water at room temperature (I take 3 tablespoons of salt for 1 liter). Leave for 2 hours. I shift in a colander. I doused with hot water. The film will curdle instantly. Carefully remove the yastyk and get peeled seeds.

Thanks to the colander

I divide yastyk into several parts. I put it in a colander with medium-sized holes. Pour a small amount of boiling water. I let the water drain. Quickly I shake the colander, so that the cleared pink salmon eggs fall through the holes. The film will remain in the kitchen utensils.

With a mixer

An effective way to clean large quantities of caviar in a short time. There is one important note: be careful not to damage the eggs.

Spread caviar in a bowl. Add water, rinse thoroughly. I take a mixer (nozzle - a whisk). Turn on the average power and lowered into a large tank. When gently stirring, part of the junction will separate, the other will wind on the nozzle. Turn off the mixer. The remnants of the film are removed manually. The eggs are carefully removed from the pelvis.

  3. Carefully remove the broken seeds without touching the whole. Upon contact with the solution, the damaged eggs acquire a distinct white color.
  4. Spread yastyk, extract whole grains, passing through a colander or grate.
