Cucumber-Caviar Sauce Recipe

close up image of caviarCucumber-Caviar Sauce is a fantastic gourmet sauce that goes well with either smoked or baked salmon.  Actually a fantastic cream sauce to serve with any seafood.  I have also served this Cucumber-Caviar Sauce with steamed artichokes – so delicious!  This sauce is so easy to make as it comes together very fast with only four ingredients.

The two most popular beverages to serve with caviar are frozen vodka or a very dry Champagne or sparkling wine.  A dry white wine also works well.

Do not open caviar until needed.  Refrigerate but never freeze!  Freezing of caviar can be done but is not recommended.  Freezing can toughen the caviar roe membrane and alter the flavor.  If you feel you will not be able to consume your caviar within the three weeks recommended or you are not able to refrigerate it properly, freezing is an option.  If you freeze your caviar, you must thaw it slowly in your refrigerator over most of a day prior to serving.  Learn more about American Caviar.
