What are Caviar Frites?

In French, “frites” translates to (French) “fries.” And although you might not think of French fries as a gourmet dish, in this dish, they get a serious upgrade with the addition of high-quality caviar and creme fraiche. 

Are Caviar Frites Good?

Yes! If you have an appreciation for the complex, layered flavors of caviar, you’re bound to enjoy this delightful appetizer. The saltiness of the French fries is flawlessly balanced by the light, creamy taste of creme fraiche so that the caviar can be the highlight of the dish.

How Do You Make Caviar Frites?

Perfectly crispy French fries are topped with generous dollops of creme fraiche and a drizzle of freshly-squeezed lemon juice. Then, the star ingredient is added: caviar. 

There isn’t necessarily a recipe for caviar frites; instead, it all comes down to the quality of ingredients that you use. 

Want to know the secret to enjoying the best caviar frites? Here it is: although you could attempt to make caviar frites at home, your best bet is to find the dish at a fantastic seafood restaurant. There, you can be confident that you’ll be treated to the ultimate in premium caviar and that every detail of the dish will be prepared to perfection.
