Crispy Potatoes Topped with Salmon Roe

I am truly in love with these crispy potatoes topped with salmon roe! The easiest salmon roe recipe. It comes together with a really quick creme fraiche, piped onto crispy potatoes and topped with roe.

I love this recipe for a super easy snack, or great for a holiday appetizer or party get together. You can also opt to serve on potato chips and to skip the step of making your potatoes as well!

What ingredients do you need for this salmon roe recipe?

Potatoes: We are using mini to medium sized potatoes so when we slice them, they make small cute little bites but you can also make these bites bigger by using yukon gold potatoes, or russet potatoes. Even applications like potato chips (so you can skip this whole step!) or adding the below in a baked potato is great.

Salmon Roe: Topping with salmon roe but you can also swap with caviar, or smoked salmon as well. Gravlax would be great as well.

Crème Fraîche: Tossing this with chives, salt and pepper. But you can also use sour cream to swap as well.

Topped with chives! Other herbs you can use are fresh dill, or spring onions as well.

Instructions to make this recipe

Prep your potatoes

Begin by cutting your potatoes into thin slices, your choice of size. Soak in water for up to 30 minutes to one hour. This helps get out the starches and get crispier this way when frying.

Mix your crème fraîche

While that’s soaking, in a small to medium sized bowl, mix your crème fraîche with salt, pepper and thinly chopped chives. Toss and set aside. I placed mine in a plastic bag/piping bag to pipe on the potatoes, but that’s optional!

Fry and season potatoes

Once your soaking is complete, dry your potatoes well on a towel or paper towels and heat up neutral oil in a deep pan. You can also bake this in the oven, or air fryer. Slowly and carefully fry/bake/roast your potatoes until soft inside and crunchy on the outside and place on a wire rack to cool.

Transfer your potatoes to a bowl, season and mix with salt, pepper and a dash of smoked paprika, to just bring out some flavors.

Assemble

Layer all your potatoes on a platter, pipe over your crème fraîche per potato and finish off with a dollop of salmon roe per potato, chopped chives a cracked black pepper.

Tips, Tricks and Substitutions

How can I prep this recipe in advance? Make your potatoes and set aside at either room temperature, or if you will be making it the day after, place in the fridge and re-heat when time to assemble (or re-fry!) You an also just use potato chips, too instead of making your crispy potatoes. Then prep your creme fraiche and store in the fridge.

When it’s time to assemble, remove all from the fridge, plate and serve.

What are some substitutes if I can’t access salmon roe? You can also swap with caviar, or smoked salmon as well. Gravlax would be great also.

What are some ideas to serve with this recipe? Other fun apps and sides can consist of our Cheesy Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus, Roasted Olives with Feta, Garlic & Citrus  or Baked Camembert with Honey and Chili Flakes.
