Peel egg and slice in half and separate the egg yolk and egg white. Separetely finely dice the egg white and separately grate the egg yolk.
  • Finely dice the red onion, as small as you can.
  • Prepare your caviar plate by placing the iced caviar, surrounded by grated egg yolk, egg whites, diced onion, sour cream, dill and optional lemon wedges.
  • You're now ready to build your own Blini with Caviar. Spread sour cream on the blinis, add a bit of egg yolk, egg whites, onion and dill, then top with caviar. Enjoy!
