Caviar Recipes

Inspired by Wolfgang Puck who loves adding smoked salmon, caviar, and dill crème fraîche on his signature pizzas- they also go great using crispy potato pancakes as well.

6 shallots, finely chopped
2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup vodka
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup chives
2 oz. Sevruga or golden Whitefish Caviar

Cook pasta and drain. Melt butter in a skillet or saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and stir for 3 minutes. Add cream and vodka and bring to a boil.

1 box whole black peppercorns (for garnish)
1 box kosher salt (for garnish)
8 ounces seaweed (for garnish)
24 small oysters, shells scrubbed
1 seedless gourmet cucumber
4 ounces (1 stick) cold, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
Salt and pepper
1/4 lemon
3 large shallots, peeled and finely diced
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 ounces caviar, Osetra preferred

Preheat oven to 450F. Place a generous handful of peppercorn/salt mixture onto oven-safe plates and spread it evenly. Top with seaweed and set plates aside. Shuck the oysters. Refrigerate oysters and place six bottom shells atop the seaweed on each plate. (Recipe may be prepared ahead to this point.) Peel cucumber, cut in half lengthwise, and then slice crosswise into 1/8-inch half-moon pieces. Place in a saucepan with 1tablespoon butter and cook over low heat until just tender but not soft. Season with salt and pepper, squeeze of lemon juice and keep warm. In a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the shallots with 1 tablespoon butter. When the shallots are soft, add the wine and boil until it is almost entirely evaporated. Working on and off the heat, make a beurre blanc by whisking in the remaining 6 tablespoons butter-a tablespoon or two at a time, making sure it does not liquefy. Hold in a warm place but not over direct heat. In each shell, make a bed of several cucumber slices and top with an oyster. Place plates in oven until oysters are warmed but not cooked, 2 to 3 minutes. Season the beurre blanc to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Remove plates from the oven and spoon 1 tablespoon butter sauce over each oyster, top with caviar and serve with your favourite Champagne or white wine.
