Cucumber-Caviar Cups Recipe

A fun, decadent and delicious appetizer that's easy to make and tastes great. Serve it alongside some of our other menu ideas for A Modern Caviar Cocktail Party. 

Ingredients

*Note: Any leftover crème fraîche can be added to a soup or atop smoked salmon.

Directions

Using a melon baller, scoop out some of the cucumber flesh, leaving the bottom intact, for all of the slices. Then add a dollop of crème fraîche inside each cucumber cup. Top with a caviar cube and then a pinch of tarragon or dill.

Serve immediately, or wrap loosely and store in the refrigerator.

Cucumber Shopping Tip

There are three different types of cucumbers: slicing, pickling, and “burpless.” If you're making sandwiches, you might want to try the “burpless” variety which are naturally seedless and are less likely to cause gas.

Cucumber Cooking Tip

Salting your cucumber slices and allowing them to drain over a colander for about an hour will get rid of any excess water and keep your sandwich from becoming soggy.
