Black Caviar Recipes for your next gathering

Black Caviar Recipes If you are seeking an elegant, affordable way to add caviar to your next gathering, these black caviar recipes are just what you are looking for! While there is no question that Golden Imperial Russian Ossetra is the richest, most succulent caviar available, it may be a little pricy for individuals looking for a way to incorporate this luxury food into their daily lifestyle.

Hackleback sturgeon caviar, also known as American Premium Black Caviar, is a more affordable choice that allows you to enjoy caviar anytime, without sacrificing taste or quality.

Recipes made from American Premium Black Caviar are an ideal way to add an elegant touch to your next gathering that your guests will love!

Hackleback caviar is a perfectly scrumptious combination of superb taste and comfortable price point, harvested from wild sturgeon that swim in the rivers and lakes of Illinois and Tennessee.

The gleaming black glossy globes of Hackleback caviar deliver a sweet, buttery flavor and a strong nutty finish that is often compared favorably to the finest Caspian Sea Ossetra caviar. With an eminently affordable price and delectable taste, Hackleback caviar is the perfect choice for devoted epicureans and newbie foodies looking to introduce caviar into their lifestyle.

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes


2 eggs

1 egg yolk

1/2 teaspoon white Truffle Oil

2/3 cup heavy cream

1/3 cup milk

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/2 pound crabmeat

1 tablespoon finely chopped chives

2 teaspoons freshly-squeezed lime juice

Salt and coarsely-ground black pepper, to taste

1/2 ounce Hackleback black caviar


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Adjust oven rack to center position, and arrange 12 shot glasses in a 9-by-9-inch baking pan.  Bring a kettle of water to a low simmer over low heat.
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolk, and truffle oil; set aside.
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream, milk, and soy sauce. Bring just to a boil, stirring constantly; remove from the heat and let cool 1 minute.  Whisking constantly, slowly pour the hot cream mixture into the eggs. Immediately strain the mixture through a mesh strainer into a large liquid measuring cup.
  1. Pour the strained custard mixture into the shot glasses, filling them about 3/4 full. Carefully pour enough hot water from the kettle into the baking pan to reach halfway up the shot glasses.  Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake approximately 9 to 10 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean – custards should be firm at the edges and just barely wobbly at the center.  If needed, cook another 1 to 2 minutes.
  1. Remove from oven and immediately remove cups from the water bath. Let cool at room temperature until ready.
  1. While the custards cook and cool, prepare the crab mixture by gently mixing together the crab, chives, and lime juice in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. To serve, spoon a small amount of the prepared crab mixture over each custard, then top with a dollop of caviar.

Makes 12 shot glasses. Recipe adapted by What’s Cooking America from Brad Farmerie, executive chef at Monday Room wine bar in New York.
