A step by step instruction on how to make Ikura!!

Thank you to my father's friend Koichi, who is from Japan and who sent me this link on how to prepare Ikura. This is a complete, step by step set of instructions on how to take the Ikura out of the sojiko inside of the female salmon and how to prepare it. I especially enjoy the photographs that accompany the Japanese instructions. Check it out!

This looks just like Ikura!!

This orange sand inside this container mimics the appearance of Ikura! I found these in a local pharmacy, go figure!

I have to go here when I go to Japan!!

                  This is the Higo-Ikura railway station on the Kagoshima Main Line, which is operated by JR Kyushu in Tamana, Kumamoto, Japan on the south western coast. I wonder of they serve Ikura on the train? Now that would be truly amazing!

Captain's Salmon (Red) Caviar 180 g (6.3 oz.) jar

                   I have been constantly in search of online distributors of Ikura and luckily I discovered a new website!! offers fresh Alaskan Sockeye Salmon to be delivered right to your doorstep. They feel that you should "treat your family or friends like royalty by giving them some of the world's finest and most rare caviar from Alaskan Salmon." I couldn't have said it better myself!
