Caviar is a special ingredient, one to be paired with other flavors that will enhance it, not smother it. While many die-hard caviar lovers need just a tin of caviar and a mother-of-pearl spoon, I find that is a bit too hardcore for most. A moderate portion, delicately placed on a small blini, is more my speed. I think you will find that the aroma and flavor of the lemon in this recipe really lights up the saltiness of the caviar. The blini and creme fraiche make a beautiful pillow for these flavors. I think you will find that the citrus aroma and flavor of the lemon in this recipe really lights up the saltiness of the caviar. The blini and crème fraiche make a beautiful pillow for these flavors to be enjoyed on.
