This post is not a recipe but rather a collection of ingredients which make up a delicious little appetizer. I first had this at my Danish friend Tina’s house and I was immediately hooked. It consist of these wonderful mini pancakes called Blinis which are Russian in origin and traditionally made of buckwheat flour and yeast. However, the ones I got a hold of was actually French Blinis which have no buckwheat flour in them. I choose to serve the Blinis at room temperature but you can warm them up a little if you so choose. Then add the following toppings of your choice; slice of smoked Salmon, sliced hardboiled egg, dollop of sour cream and top off with caviar. I just love the rude popping sensation against the roof of my mouth from the caviar, delicious!
Blini topping ideas:
Salmon, hard-boiled egg, sour cream and caviar
Chopped strawberries marinated in balsamic vinegar
Brie and fruit preserves
Chopped, cooked fresh apples with cinnamon
Creme Fraiche, minced red onion, smoked salmon and dill
