Try this delicious fish roe toast with cress and a fresh lemon flavored crème fraiché, fresh, delicious and easy to make.
Fish roe toast is a great snack or appetizer, warm crunchy toast with the mild taste of fish roe and some fresh lemon flavored crème fraiché.
This is very simple to make and is usually very appreciated, you can use any good tasting roe you like. For these pictures I used lump roe which is a really cheap one with a rough saltiness and hard pearls that pop in your mouth. It´s not the ideal roe but a great alternative when you’re on a budget.
If you can afford it on your budget you can go way higher and usually the quality and taste will be adjusted with what you pay.
Fish Roe Toast with Cress and Lemon Crème Fraiché
serves 4 as a snack or small appetizer
4 slices white bread
150g / 5.3 oz roe of your choice
100g / 3.5 oz crème fraiché
Zest the lemon and combine with the crème fraiché, season with salt and pepper and let sit for one hour to let the lemon taste develop. You can also add lemon juice if you want more acidity and lemon taste.
Slice the bread and grill, let the bread cool off and then spread the lemon crème fraiche on top, add a spoonful of roe on top and finish off with some fresh cut cress.
