Culinarily Handicapped - pate, foie gras, etc.

Lumpfish roe tastes nothing like beluga. Black caviar has a rich buttery taste which is only slightly salty (I don't think its really fishy at all). Lumpfish roe is usually disgustingly oversalted and generally tasteless.

TRT tastes "not overly salty" to me because I use small amounts ususally cut with other bland food like chopped eggor potato as decribed above. If I have to eat it plain there had better be a bottle of Veuve Clicquot in close proximity. I have had cheap supermarket kind and fresh-ultra-expensive-he-had-an-expense-account kind and frankly, I can't tell them apart unlesss they were stored for ages and are awful. There are colors other than black; You should have a clean glass container with a silver insert than you jam ice inbetween. The real McCoys know to use a spoon made from mother of pearl but, to me, whenever I see these spoons I think of drug dealers and I cringe. Just get some, put it on a bed of ice, and try a bit at a time and it won't seem salty. The champagne helps you feel like a millionaire!
