Good caviar doesn’t need a lot to shine on a plate and it is generally known that eggs pair well with these flavourful edible pearls.
Think of fluffy scrambled eggs served with this splendid caviar and the resulting flavours and textures.
It seems scrambled eggs are easy to make but when aiming for this ultimate breakfast experience some techniques are required to serve the perfect eggs.
Work over low heat to develop the curds little by little, stir constantly to prevent the eggs sticking to the bottom of the pan and turning into an omelette. The added whipped cream makes the eggs very creamy and soft. The caviar is provided by our friends of Kings fine food and Kaluga Queen. You can substitute the caviar for lumpfish eggs but the texture of the eggs will be less subtle.
The use of an egg cutter or toque oeuf will help you to cut the egg shells perfectly.
Less is more is a perfect quote for this dish!
