Serves 4

Coarse sea salt
4 large eggs
1lb spaghetti
5 tbsp butter
freshly ground black pepper
6 scallions, thinly sliced
8 tbsp Osetra Caviar, or more to taste

Fill a large pot with water, season generously with sea salt and bring to the boil.
Meanwhile, fill a small pan with water and bring to a boil. Add the eggs to a small pan and reduce the heat to an active simmer. Cook for 9 1/2 minutes. Drain. When the eggs are cool enough to handle, peel and finely chop. Set aside

When the large pot of water boils, add the spaghetti and cook until al dente.
Drain, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. Add the butter and a few tbsp of cooking water to the pot and place over medium high heat.
When melted and bubbling, add the spaghetti and toss to coat. Season with salt and a generous amount of pepper.

To serve, divide the spaghetti among four plates. Sprinkle the chopped egg and scallion on top. Spoon the caviar in the center.
Serve immediately; guests will mix the spaghetti as they eat
