Corn and Honey Blini’s Topped with Bowfin Caviar

It took twelve years to find a kosher caviar that I felt stood up to traditional caviar. True caviar comes from sturgeon and sturgeon only. Unfortunately, sturgeon does not have scales and therefore is a non kosher fish. The caviar That we are using comes from bowfin, which is a kosher fish with tremendous quality and flavor. It was always a dream of mine to create one of my favorite canapes and once I found this product I knew I could do it.


  • Prep Time : 30 min
  • Cook Time : 15 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min


4-6 Servings


  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow corn flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy creamer (milk if serving dairy)
  • Vegetable oil to pan fry (3-5 tbsp.)
  • 1/2 cup parve sour cream
  • 3 ounce bowfin caviar
  • 1/2 cup mimosa of eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives


In a mixing bowl combine the flour, corn flour, baking powder, and salt.  In a separate mixing bowl mix the egg, honey, and creamer until fully combined.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until there are no lumps.  Let the batter rest in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes.  Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and spoon batter into mini blini pancakes, the size of quarters (a teaspoon works well for this).  When bubbles form on the top or when the blini are golden brown on the edges, flop and cook on the oposite side for 15 seconds.  Spoon sour cream and a dollop of caviar on each blini, and garnish with the egg mimosa and chives on the side.

Serve warm for a contrast in temperatures and flavors.
