Scrambled Eggs with Lobster and Caviar
David Burke

Caviar to chefs is like expensive paint to artists and is used often in restaurants, but that doesn’t mean home cooks can’t be cooking with it, as well. I say cook, but really caviar is used as a garnish in cooking. Dolloped on top of crème fraîche and smoked salmon or sprinkled on creamy scrambled eggs like in this recipe, it adds a rich quality to your food that cannot be replicated by anything else.

  • 1 Tablespoon American sturgeon caviar

Scrambled Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Scrambled Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
