Lobster Scrambled Eggs with Caviar and Crème Fraîche

This ultra-indulgent lobster scramble with caviar and créme fraîche is served during weekend brunch at the Washington, DC outpost of BLT Prime. It’s a relatively simple dish, so make sure you get the best-quality ingredients you can, from the eggs to the butter (and of course, the lobster). American sturgeon caviar is generally more affordable than imported Russian or Iranian brands, but still fairly expensive—the price varies too, depending on brand, the specific fish it comes from, and of course, the amount you buy, so shop around, and try to buy in person at a store that will let you have a taste before you commit to the purchase. The dish is also delicious without caviar.

Tips for Eggs


  1. 1Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. 2Melt the butter, then add the shallots and tomatoes.
  3. 3Sauté, stirring or shaking the pan continuously, until crispy on the edges, about 5-7 minutes. Add the eggs and scramble to your desired doneness.
  4. 4Add the lobster meat and toss lightly to combine.
  5. 5Add the salt, pepper, and chives, then divide between 4 bowls.
  6. 6Top each serving with a dollop of crème fraîche and a dollop of caviar and serve immediately.
