Caviar & Egg Salad Spread
This a smaller, simpler adaptation of the classic Caviar Pie 
recipe listed on Romanoff's Black Lumpfish Caviar. It serves
4-6 people. Caviar is fish eggs. They are quite fragile.
Handle them gently so as not to break them.

1/4 cup minced sweet onion *
2 hard cooked eggs
2 TBS mayonnaise
1 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 dash hot sauce
1 dash salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 jar caviar, black or red lumpfish (2 oz jar)
Chop the sweet onion and press on a paper towel to absorb 
moisture. Combine the mayonnaise and cream cheese. Mash
the eggs. Mix together all ingredients, except the caviar.
Form the mixture into a 6 inch diameter circle in the middle
of serving plate. If you use a large (12" dia) plate, you
can serve crackers around the outside.
Just before serving, carefully rinse the caviar in a bowl 
of water. Strain and spread the caviar on a towel to drain.
Spread the caviar smoothly over the egg salad mixture.
Serve with crackers.

* If using a strong onion, soak the minced onion in cold
water for 15 minutes. Strain and pat dry with towesl
