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.

- 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
- 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.
