Caviar and Salmon Parfait

Yield:
6 to 8 appetizer portions
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1 six-inch stainless steel pastry ring without top or bottom
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound smoked salmon
  • 8 ounces salmon caviar
  • 8 ounces black caviar (American sturgeon or better if budget allows)
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • 2 ounces fresh dill
  • Watercress to garnish
  • 1 package rye crisp, Melba toast or other thin, crisp bread
Directions
  • Drain the sour cream overnight in a cheesecloth-lined sieve, mix dill into sour cream. Coat the inside of the pastry ring with a thin coating of vegetable oil and place the pastry ring in the center of a decorative serving platter.

  • Fill the bottom of the ring with smoked salmon that is thinly sliced and layer it into one even layer. Spoon a thin layer of dill cream onto the salmon. Top with an even layer of salmon caviar, being careful not to break any of the eggs. Top with dill cream. Finish with a layer of black caviar and dollop with dill cream. Chill in ring for 1 hour or more before serving to allow parfait to set. Remove the ring carefully and garnish the top of the parfait with sprigs of dill. Use watercress leaves and crisp bread to garnish the platter.
