Caviar Canapés are an exquisite Christmas appetizer, quick and easy to prepare, and require no cooking. Black caviar is typically obtained from various sturgeon species (such as Beluga, Oscietra, Sevruga), and its color ranges from dark gray to black. We thought of using it to create classic finger foods reserved for special occasions like Christmas lunch or Christmas Eve dinner. They will also be perfect for celebrating New Year's, adding an elegant and delicious touch to your New Year's Eve dinner, perhaps a seafood-based menu!
These special canapés burst with flavors and are a true delight for the palate, thanks to the choice of high-quality ingredients that blend perfectly to create an elegant and tantalizing dish. The contrast between the creaminess of the fresh cheese spread, the rich and smoky flavor of the salmon, and the touch of luxury from the caviar makes them an ideal choice to impress your guests and make your Christmas menu even more memorable!
