Pasta with Salmon Caviar

caviar-ikura-3

Cook the pasta al dente in unsalted boiling water 3-5 minutes for fresh pasta; 5-7 minutes for dried pasta.

Sauce: in a large skillet on medium heat, reduce the wine by half, add the butter and melt. Add the cream to the butter wine mixture and continue to cook until the cream begins to bubble.

Combine the cooked pasta, cream and butter and gradually add the Parmesan cheese and toss until the cheese has melted.

Season with pepper only.

Gently fold salmon ikura caviar into the pasta just before serving (reserve a small amount of caviar for garnish). Turn the pasta into a warm serving bowl or warm plates and garnish with parsley and salmon caviar and serve.

This recipe will adequately serve 4-6 as a first course. As a main course it will serve 4.
