How To Make Black Olive Caviar Bites

A simple mock caviar recipe without spending big bucks on the actual thing. This recipe makes use of the slight saltiness from the black olives to imitate its pricier alternative.

  • 1 egg (hard-cooked )
  • salt
  • pepper (freshly ground, to taste)
  • 1.2 cup crème fraiche (sour cream, or fresh white goat cheese)

Caviar:

  • 2 1/4 oz. black olives (sliced, drained and finely chopped)

  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper (freshly ground or to taste)
  1. To make the caviar, stir together all the ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  3. To prepare the egg, using a fork, finely crumble the egg in a small bowl. Season to taste.
  4. To assemble each serving, starting at the handle end of the spoon, arrange rows of about 1/2 tsp. crème fraiche, sour cream, or goat cheese, about 1/2 tsp. egg, and about 1/2 tsp. caviar.
  5. Pass the assembled spoons on a tray or platter.
  6. Provide a glass or other container where your guests can place the spoons once they have taken their bite.

Advance preparation: The caviar will keep for up to 2 days in a covered container in the refrigerator. Assemble the spoons up to 1 hour before serving; cover and refrigerate.
Yield: 1/2 C. caviar (enough for 48 spoon-size bites)
