I love throwing big dinner parties and making it fancy! After all, who doesn’t love to be treated to something truly special? But fancy doesn’t have to mean difficult. For a real special occasion appetizer, my mind went to salmon tartare with caviar. I love the savory, ocean briny flavor of fresh and smoked salmon, paired with the tart, mildly pungent flavor of whole grain mustard. Caviar really takes it over the top for a festive meal, but the salmon tartare is just as delicious without it.
