Mini blini

 Here is a highly tasty and versatile nibble from Russia; a country with a huge amount of expertise when it comes to drinking and tradition.

 

 While I would normally encourage making things at home, I saw some miniature blini for sale in the supermarket and decided just to buy them for a martini accompaniment. Otherwise, I have seen several good recipes online. I found this one particularly interesting.

Otherwise, as per the instructions on the packet of any store-bought blinis, I baked them on a tray in the oven for 4 minutes.

Mix some sour cream with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and add a little to the blini. 

Add a topping. Popular items include pickled or smoked fish (I used hot, smoked salmon), boiled egg or fish roe, such as caviar. 

Serve with a Classic Martini (you might want to make it with vodka instead of gin to accompany this Russian speciality).

Na zdorovie!
