Chive Blini with Creme Fraiche and Salmon Roe

This is a fantastic cocktail recipe that works, gives great yield, and has a beautiful aesthetic.  I used Food Network’s recipe for the chive blinis and I was thrilled with the uniform size that a teaspoon will give you.  The batter was easy to work with and it went very well with the creme fraiche and the salmon roe.  An easy crowd-pleaser.  Follow the link below for the recipe.

A note on salmon roe–it is a lot cheaper than black caviar but beware how many eggs you add- they have a great texture and a wonderful burst in your mouth but are also incredibly salty.  I found that three was the max and looked the best for a one inch blini.
