Eggs with Brown Butter and Salmon Caviar

  • TOTAL TIME: 40 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 10

Instead of the usual deviled egg, Grace tops hard-boiled eggs with julieneed radish, salmon caviar and brown butter for a refined but tempting hors d/oeuvre. The recipe is inspired by an appetizer from Manhattan's Prune restaurant.

  1. 1 dozen large eggs
  2. 3 large radishes, finely julienned
  3. 2 tablespoons crème fraîche or sour cream
  4. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 1 ounce salmon caviar
  7. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  1. Put the eggs in a large saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to a rolling boil. Cover tightly and remove from the heat. Let stand for 12 minutes.
  2. Fill a medium bowl with ice water. Pour out the water from the saucepan and shake the pan gently to crack the egg shells. Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool, then pat the eggs dry. Peel the eggs and halve each one lengthwise. Slice a thin sliver from the bottom of each egg half to keep it steady.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the radishes with the crème fraîche, lemon zest and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Spoon the radishes onto the eggs and top with a small dollop of salmon caviar.
  4. In a small skillet, cook the butter over moderate heat until lightly browned and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and spoon a small drizzle over the caviar. Serve right away.

Suggested Pairing

Elegant, toasty Champagne.
