Checkerboard of Caviar Eggs

Recipe Courtesy of Cooking.com.

Here’s a new twist on a party standby: deviled eggs topped with caviar. The checkerboard effect is achieved by using black sevruga or pressed caviar, red salmon caviar, and the yellow roe from whitefish.

Ingredients

  • 8 large eggs
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 1 1/2 ounces smoked or kippered salmon, rough chopped
  • White part of 1 scallion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ounce sevruga caviar or pressed caviar
  • 1 ounce salmon roe
  • 1 ounce golden whitefish roe

Preparation

  • 1 Cover the eggs with cold water in a pan. Bring the water to a boil, reduce the heat, and gently simmer the eggs for exactly 11 minutes. (More than 11 minutes and you will get a green ring around the yolk.)
  • 2 Run the eggs under cold water and shell them immediately. (As the cold water hits the hot egg, it will create a pocket of steam under the shell, which facilitates peeling.)
  • 3 Cut a 1/8-inch slice off the end of each egg, so that the halves will sit upright without wobbling. Cut each egg in half widthwise and carefully remove the yolk with a spoon. Place the egg yolks in a food processor with the smoked salmon and scallion white and puree until smooth.
  • 4 Add the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and pepper and puree until smooth.
  • 5 Pipe rosettes of salmon egg mixture into the egg white halves, using a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. If you don't have a piping bag, spoon the filling into the whites as neatly as you can.
  • 6 Using a fork, place small mounds of black caviar on some of the eggs, red on some, and yellow on some. To achieve a checkerboard effect, arrange the eggs in rows, alternating colors.
