Growing up, my parents threw a swanky New Year’s Eve party every year, not only to welcome the new year, but also to celebrate their anniversary (they were married on January 1st). I loved watching all the adults in their fancy clothes eating lavish hors d’oeuvres and having fun! To this day I think of New Year’s Eve as a night for elegance and sophistication, even if we’re just planning a quiet night at home to watching the Times Square ball drop on television.
To me, nothing says elegance and sophistication like caviar, especially on New Year’s Eve. Don’t you agree? For some simple, yet elegant hors d’oeuvres to ring in the new year, try these Caviar and Smoked Salmon Appetizers, which pair perfectly with champagne!
Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Rolls with Caviar
Yields Approximately 12 rounds
1 English cucumber, thinly sliced lengthwise (preferably sliced with a mandolin) or cut into 1/4-inch rounds
2 ounces smoked salmon, or more as needed, cut into 12 pieces
Crème fraiche, or more as needed
1 ounce any variety of caviar or fish roe (I used salmon roe and paddlefish caviar)

Wow gorgeous caviar appetizers!
great recipe idea, but I hope its not farmed salmon because there have been serious health alerts issued lately http://www.alexandramorton.ca
I’m probably late for the (New Year’s) party, but I happened to be looking for caviar appetizers and stumbled over this post by accident on foodfotogallery.com – and now I think I have more inspiration than I could possibly need.
