8 Caviar Christmas Recipes to Try

If you're planning on serving caviar at your upcoming seasonal gathering but aren't quite sure where to start, look no further than this list. Below are some of our favorite caviar ideas for Christmastime

1. Caviar Sauce

Delicious with chips, crackers, vegetables, potato pancakes, and everything in between, this caviar sauce is a must-try for your next holiday gathering. You'll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon snipped chives
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salmon roe
  • 1 tablespoon caviar
  • (Optional) 2 tablespoons wasabi-injected roe 


Combine all ingredients — excluding the caviar, salmon roe, and wasabi-injected roe — in a mixing bowl, whisking to blend well. Gently fold in the caviar, salmon roe, and optional roe. Serve immediately with your choice of snacks, or store it covered for up to a day in the refrigerator. It's so simple you won't believe how delicious it is!

2. Four-Layered Caviar Dip

Is a holiday or Christmas party truly complete without an assortment of snacks and a delectable dip? Make this party staple even better by using caviar as the star ingredient!

This four-layered caviar dip will surely make a statement at any holiday party. Here are the ingredients you'll need:

  • 2 ounces caviar
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅓ cup thinly sliced chives
  • 6 large hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup rinsed, dried, and finely diced red onion
  • Cooking spray


Blend your mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, and chopped eggs in a bowl, then use cooking spray to lightly grease a 6-inch ring mold. Spread the egg mixture evenly along the bottom of the ring mold, then sprinkle it with the red onion. Mix together your chives and cream cheese in a separate bowl, then spread it gently on top of the onion. Top the chives and cream cheese mixture with the caviar. Refrigerate the dip for 2 hours, then serve it on a platter or plate with crackers.

3. Smoked Salmon and Caviar Cream Cheese

If you're looking for a light meal or appetizer to delight your seafood-loving guests, this smoked salmon and caviar cream cheese recipe is a culinary masterpiece! It only takes a few simple ingredients:

  • ¼ cup caviar
  • 8 ounces smoked salmon
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream


Start by spreading your cream cheese onto a serving plate or platter. Chop the smoked salmon into small pieces, then sprinkle them over the cream cheese layer. Pour the sour cream over the salmon bits. Sprinkle your caviar on top, and there you have it! A delicious smoked salmon appetizer. 

We recommend serving this appetizer with crostini or crackers for a delicious ensemble of flavor and texture. You can also adjust the ingredient quantities depending on the number of guests you're expecting. Feel free to sprinkle on additional toppings, like thinly sliced chives or red onions.

4. Creamy Pasta With Caviar

If you need a lavish entree to impress your guests at your Christmas party, pasta and caviar is the ultimate gourmet blend. To make this pasta dish with caviar, you'll need:

  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 4 strips raw chopped bacon
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 small diced onion
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon caviar
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions, then drain the saucepan, reserving and setting aside some of the pasta water. Next, cook the bacon over medium heat in a large skillet until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set aside, preserving the bacon fat in the skillet.

Add the minced garlic and diced onion to the skillet and cook until the onions are translucent. Stir in the parmesan cheese and heavy cream until the mixture thickens. Sprinkle in red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Add the cooked spaghetti to the skillet, tossing and coating it in the sauce. If the sauce isn't coming together, you can add pasta water a few spoonfuls at a time and continue tossing. Top the creamy pasta with bacon and caviar.

5. Caviar Ball

This recipe is the perfect addition to a holiday party menu! Combining the savory flavors of cream cheese, caviarand Worcestershire sauce, this one-of-a-kind appetizer will have everyone returning for more. 

We recommend serving this caviar ball with a plain snack, like toasted white bread or crackers, to bring out the caviar flavors. To start, gather the following ingredients:

  • 1 8-ounce package of cream cheese
  • 2 shakes of Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon milk or cream
  • 1 or 2 finely chopped scallions
  • 2 ounces caviar


Combine all of your ingredients except the caviar, then place them on a piece of plastic wrap and form a ball. Chill the ball in the fridge for about a day or two until firm. When the day of your holiday party arrives, place the ball over an ice-filled dish. Spread some caviar over the ball and serve with a mother of pearl spoon. Feel free to garnish the ball with some parsley or a maraschino cherry.

6. Caviar and Crème Fraîche Tartlets

A French term that translates to "fresh cream," crème fraîche is a fermented dairy product with a rich, tangy flavor and thick consistency. In this caviar and crème fraîche tartlet recipe, light and fluffy cream gives way to the buttery richness of caviar for a palate-pleasing combo. Crisp tart shells add the perfect balance of texture. This dish makes a perfect holiday party appetizer! 

Start by gathering these ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons caviar
  • 6 tablespoons homemade or store-bought crème fraîche
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced chives
  • 12 mini round tart shells


Assemble the tart shells onto a serving platter, then scoop the crème fraîche into a Ziploc bag. Snip a small opening in the corner of the bag, then pipe about ½ tablespoon of crème fraîche onto each tart shell. Spoon about ½ teaspoon of caviar on top of each tartlet. Garnish with chives, serve, and enjoy!

7. Scallop and Caviar Salad

A scallop and caviar salad is a refreshing course to start your Christmas dinner with. It's easy to make and very subtle — the perfect appetizer. You can customize your salad with whatever extra ingredients you want to add, like boiled eggs, but here are the base ingredients: 

  • 1 cup of mixed greens
  • 1 pound of sea scallops
  • 1 sliced avocado
  • 2 tablespoons of vinaigrette salad dressing.
  • 2 tablespoons of caviar. Ossetra is preferred, but any caviar will work well.


Heat a lightly oiled grill pan over high heat. Add the scallops and grill them for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until they are cooked through. Mix your greens, avocado, and cooked scallops in a large bowl. Add the vinaigrette and mix. Portion the salad onto plates, and garnish each serving with caviar. You can definitely customize the recipe to your liking, but remember to keep the flavors subtle so that nothing overpowers the caviar.

8. Caviar Pie

This is one of the most reliable and crowd-pleasing Christmas caviar recipes. After all, everyone is familiar with pie, and it doesn't feel out of place at a Christmas dinner!

Caviar pie is an extravagant appetizer that will give your guests a taste to remember. To make it, you will need:

  • 1-1 ½ cups of caviar
  • 1-1 ½ cups sour cream
  • 6-8 hard-cooked eggs, minced. 
  • 2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ½ cup scallions, minced


Cut a strip of parchment paper to line a pie pan. Mash your hard-boiled eggs with the mayonnaise until combined. Scoop the egg mixture into the pie pan to form the pie crust, pressing it firmly into the bottom and sides of the pan. Sprinkle minced scallions over the egg "crust," and spread the caviar over the top of the scallions. Finally, spread sour cream over the top of the pie in an even layer. Leave it in the fridge for at least four hours until you're ready to serve. We recommend leaving the pie in the refrigerator overnight. 

Once you're ready to serve, gently remove the pie from the pan by easing it onto your serving plate with a large knife, being careful to ensure it maintains its shape. Garnish the pie with a lemon slice and some slices of smoked salmon, and serve alongside an assortment of crackers and toast points.
