“Caviar wishes and champagne dreams” isn’t just a phrase from “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” – it’s a reality for anybody on TikTok, where caviar has become hugely popular especially when served with Doritos.
A little creme fraiche completes the savory, salty, crunchy bite.
Other social media foodies who have tried and approved of the caviar and Dorito combo say it’s a flavor explosion that delivers the exact right blend of flavors, textures, and high/low sensibility.
Conventional ways to eat caviar include blini, which are little pancakes, or melba toast. However, nobody has ever turned down a potato chip topped with the good stuff.
Doritos + Caviar: Bodega-Chic
Make no mistake: This is not a cheap snack to serve a crew of teenage kids after a basketball game.
Caviar can range from over $800 for premium sturgeon fish eggs to much more palatable prices for paddlefish or hackleback roe. Don’t forget the mother of pearl (or at least non-metallic) spoon to serve the caviar, so the roe doesn’t take on a metallic taste.
Though the trend is fairly decried as extremely expensive, when there’s a will, there’s a way.
If you’re here for the taste but not the price tag, try more economically priced salmon, or flying fish roe that is popular in Eastern European and Japanese cultures.
