Yes, You Heard Right, Caviar and Cannabis

We use a sweet caramelized onion dip as the vessel for the bud, then choose your own adventure by either spreading the caviar and cannabis onion dip on brioche toast or dipping potato chips and spooning a generous amount of caviar on top. 

Cannabis and caviar may seem like an unlikely pairing, but when they come together in this caramelized onion dip recipe, the result is surprisingly delicious and indulgent. 

The base of the dip is made from caramelized onions, sour cream, and mayonnaise, which combine to create a rich and savory flavor that’s perfect for dipping.

What is the difference between Caviar and Roe?

At its core, caviar and roe are the same thing, salted fish eggs. 

In the restaurant industry, however, the two terms are used to distinguish fish eggs originating from sturgeon, caviar, and eggs coming from a variety of species, roe. Fish eggs come in all shapes and sizes, for this recipe, we’ll be highlighting the classic little black caviar of the sturgeon and the big bright orange salmon roe.  

Both caviar and salmon roe pair well with the dip. Salmon eggs are bigger and pack a bigger punch of ocean flavor that stand up to the flavorful infused cannabis dip.

What Bud Should We Pair For Caviar and Cannabis Dip?

The salty fish eggs will do well with a citrusy pairing, one that will compliment caviar’s delicate briny flavor and won’t overpower it. I find that strains that have a good amount of limonene work perfectly.

Using the strain finder we can search for strains that contain limonene, a type of terpene found in marijuana that happens to be the same compound produced by citrus. Lemon Haze and Mimosa both have these citrus notes.

If you’re thinking of skipping the caviar for now and want to try the dip on its own, then we can go to the other extreme with funky terpenes and bring out those cheesy notes with an indica like Strawberry Cheesecake

This cannabis-infused caramelized onion dip with caviar is a sophisticated and flavorful appetizer that is sure to impress. 

By following the simple instructions and using high-quality ingredients, you can create a luxurious and delicious dip that combines the flavors of cannabis and caviar into an unforgettable dish.
