Even though I was on a budget, I could help but place a jar of red caviar (a.k.a. salmon roe a.k.a. ikura) into my shopping basket when I picked up groceries at Citarella. At $10.99, it wasn't breaking the piggy bank but it certainly wasn't a necessity either. I was getting bored with my usual salads and rotisserie chickens. Sometimes you have to splurge a little on an oddball item to get creative in the kitchen.
3 small boiled red potatoes
Maldon sea salt
Freshly cracked black pepper
1. Slice the potatoes into disks and lay down on a plate.
2. Drizzle melted butter over the potatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
3. Snip lots of dill and chives on top.
4. Spoon red caviar randomly over the entire dish as garnish.
*If you have gravlax/smoked salmon and/or crème fraîche, add them to the plate to turn this into a more substantial #singlegirldinner.
