Eggs and fish roe are a classic combination. Herring roe is sold in a jar and is wonderful to use as a topping for canapés. Serve these canapés with chilled white wine as a light starter to accompany our recipe for pan-fried swordfish.
The crisp cases can be made well in advance and can be stored for a day or so in an airtight tin. The egg mixture can also be made a day ahead but be sure to assemble the cases only an hour or two before eating so they stay crisp. You can substitute smoked trout for the salmon or omit it altogether. This recipe is not suitable for the young, pregnant women, elderly people or those whose immune systems are weak.
