Easy & Elegant Dish: Lemon Caviar Pasta

jenni Food 1 Comment

Caviar is one of those fancy food that I like eating. It’s great with crackers, eggs, cream cheese (caviar sandwiches are the bomb!) or mixed in with pasta.

You can buy caviar at leading groceries, delis or specialty stores.

I’d like to share with you one of my favorite caviar dishes that is super easy to make and affordable too! Yup, those fancy fish roe are not expensive if you use lumpfish caviar (price: P450-P1,000+ a small jar). Of course, Beluga and Ostera are better but they cost an arm and a leg.

Lemon Caviar Pasta

I love the saltiness of the caviar and the fresh lemon juice gives pasta a refreshing taste to it.

Ingredients:

Spaghetti or spiral pasta (I used quinoa pasta for this recipe. It has a nutty taste to it compared to regular pasta.)
1-2 tbsp caviar
2 tbsp. butter (I recommend French butter)
Fresh lemon juice
Salt
Pepper

Step 1: Cook pasta until al dente. Drain quickly, leaving a little of the water.

Step 2: While your pasta cooks, melt butter in a pan and continue cooking until golden brown color (“noisette”) appears in the thinnest liquid of the butter.

Step 3: Quickly toss pasta with melted butter, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

Step 4: Top with a large dollop of fresh caviar. You can squeeze more lemon juice if you wish.

Step 5: Serve with a smile! 🙂

Whenever the weather permits, I eat in our patio. I’m all about dining al freso these days. Can’t wait for the weather to be even cooler!

The most elegant dishes are the simplest—just a few basic pantry essentials and a dash special ingredient makes a mouthwatering dish. Easy to cook to!
