When the lumpfish roe is in season, you can get your own bite of paradise on earth.
A treat for the weekend or whenever... nice on mondays as well. Just be sure you have the time to do the blinis yourself.
They are are made with buckwheat, it happens to be a regional cereal in my childhood Danish island of Funen.
The red onion are less sharp in taste. Not too many since the idea is to combine with champagne.
We think the pink Rosé Assemblage is a great companion for the fish eggs.
As it is based on the Chardonnay grape, this champagne adds nicely to the taste of the fish rather than taking over entirely as is the risk with Pinot.
On top the pink colour fits the fish nicely and it is just what you need when springtime is young and we wait for the buds to burst.
Now what is left is the cooking.
Here is your recipie in English or in Danish.
You do find this kind of fish eggs in Ikea warehouses... the difference between this and the fresh product is the same as all other products. It's obviously very different when you buy it fresh... sometimes the world is not perfect and we still carry on living in it. But save the champagne for the fresh stuff.
