Using a sharp paring knife, carefully make a slit along the length of one side of each snow pea to make a pocket. In a bowl, combine creme fraiche , dill , cream cheese , lime zest , and lime juice . Mix thoroughly, then season to taste with salt and pepper . Gently fold in the caviar . Carefully pipe or stuff the snow peas with the cheese/caviar mixture. Arrange stuffed peas on a platter lined with red lettuce leaves. Note: Sour cream or plain yogurt may be substituted for the creme fraiche . Yield: 8 to 10 servings as an appetizer
