- n. roe of the salmon, red caviar
The first word of the revelation to Muhammad the Prophet is the word "ikra."
In tropical Goa, it was a Russian Christmas on Wednesday night, as tourists from the country kept their date with salted salmon, ikra (fish eggs) and chilled vodka.
In Russia Shrove Tuesday is called Maslenitsa [Масленица-Butter Maiden] and it involves bliny [блины-pancakes], covered in smetana [сметана-sour cream] with ikra [икра-caviar] on top washed down with vodka [водка-little water].
