Caviar is the epitome of luxury and maximum enjoyment and therefore the absolute highlight of every party buffet. So that you, too, can surprise your loved ones and friends with this culinary delight, we now have the most important tips for preparation and 2 delicious recipe ideas that will make you a gourmet expert at home and will be remembered by your guests for a long time will stay.
To prepare caviar correctly: you should pay attention to this
Caviar is perfect for refining small appetizers. It is important that you keep the caviar cool for as long as possible. You should therefore only open it shortly before eating or serving. If you want to give your guests the opportunity to refine their appetizers with caviar themselves, it is best to serve them in the freshly opened tin with a bowl of ice cubes.
If you do not have a special caviar set at home, you should definitely take care not to use silver cutlery when serving the caviar. Because this starts on contact with caviar and gives it a strongly fishy aftertaste. On the other hand, optimal cutlery materials are wood, horn, mother-of-pearl or gold.
Blinis, the Russian egg, but also fresh baguette, hash browns, potato wedges or toast are traditionally suitable for the selection of appetizers. Sour cream and unsalted butter go perfectly with it. Since the caviar has a very fine taste, you should make sure when choosing other ingredients that they reinforce the fine roe as a flavor carrier and not cover it with intense flavors such as garlic, fresh onions or hot spices.
The real taste of caviar is only really stylish with a glass of fine champagne or ice-cold vodka. If you want more inspiration for the perfect pleasure at home, there are now two unforgettable and at the same time simple caviar recipes.
Russian egg deluxe with caviar
The Russian egg with caviar is particularly stylish, but also simple and fast.
- 10 hard-boiled quail eggs
- 6 tbsp herb tartar sauce
- 0.5 tsp white pepper and finely ground Flor de Sal
- 5 tsp black Prunier Caviar
- 2 dashes of Worcester sauce
- Freshly chopped parsley
Place the fresh quail eggs in boiling water for 4 minutes. Then chill the eggs under cold water for several seconds and let them cool completely. Peel the eggs (here it is best to cut the firm inner skin carefully with a sharp knife) and cut through the middle lengthways. Then carefully remove the egg yolk from the egg halves and pass through a fine sieve. Then mix with the mustard, herb remoulade and spices to a fine mass. Then squeeze them into a pointed bag with a star-shaped nozzle in half the eggs. Finally, add half a teaspoon of caviar to the spray filling and garnish with parsley.
Fresh baguette with sour cream and caviar
If you want it to be even simpler and more puristic, but just as tasty, this quick caviar recipe is perfect:
- A whole baguette
- Sour Cream
- 30 g black Prunier Caviar
- Fresh dill tip
Slice the baguette vertically. Brush the slices with sour cream. Carefully spread half a teaspoon of caviar on the slices and garnish with a dill tip. Finished.
Quality is crucial for perfect caviar enjoyment
As you can see: no training as a gourmet cook is required to prepare a tasty firework with caviar. The more puristic the recipe, the greater the enjoyment of caviar. However, the quality of the caviar is crucial. Our in-house Prunier caviar, which is obtained from young Acipenser Baerii sturgeon and is characterized by a fine texture with amber-colored, soft, small grains, is particularly suitable for this.
