A simple way to add a little luxury to your meal.

At tonight’s Best New Chefs party in New York, 2011 BNC George Mendes is serving shrimp with smoked trout roe. We can’t wait to try it, because trout roe is a garnish that steals the spotlight in any dish. Bonus: It’s way cheaper than classic caviar or even salmon roe. Try it for yourself with these trout roe-heavy recipes.

1. Soft-Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Sablefish and Trout Roe

Food & Wine:

Luxurious, creamy eggs are heavenly on their own, but serving them with smoky sable, briny roe and rich sour cream puts them over the top.

2. Zucchini Latkes with Red Pepper Jelly and Smoked Trout

Food & Wine:

These crispy, fried zucchini pancakes are topped with both smoked trout and trout roe.

3. Buckwheat-Potato Knishes with Caviar

Food & Wine:
