Caviar with Soft Scrambled Eggs

Recipe for Soft Scrambled Eggs with Caviar. D'Artagnan

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. If serving in egg shells: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Using an egg topper, remove the tapered end of each egg and discard. Pour eggs into a medium bowl. Boil empty shells for 5 minutes. Remove shells using a slotted spoon. Carefully remove the soft membrane from the inside of each shell. Transfer to a wire rack to dry, cut sides down.
  2. Whisk together eggs and cream. Season with salt and pepper. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add eggs. Using a rubber spatula, stir to create curds and slide eggs from edges to center. Cook until set, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Transfer eggs to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain round tip. Pipe eggs into shells. Transfer shells to egg cups or small dishes filled with coarse salt. Top with crème fraȋche and caviar. Serve immediately with mother-of-pearl or horn caviar spoons.
