This super simple appetizer is quick to prepare and has a fantastic combination of flavors and textures. Caviar doesn’t come cheap, so your guests will appreciate the special treat! It only requires four ingredients, too: Cucumber, creme fraiche, caviar and fresh chives!
Slice the cucumber (I use an English cucumber because I prefer having less seeds) – you want the thickness to be sturdy enough that it can support the toppings, but not so thick that it can’t be eaten in one large bite!
Add creme fraiche to each cucumber slice. If you don’t have creme fraiche, you could also use sour cream – the flavor would be mellower but you might prefer that! Place a little spoonful of caviar on the top of each cucumber slice. I’ve used red salmon roe here, but if you want to be extra fancy you could use the black sturgeon row instead. I love both kinds – particularly the amazing pop of flavor in the mouth!
Finish with a small length or two of fresh chives. Place on a serving plate and enjoy!
