potato cakes with smoked salmon


For the potato cakes
3 free-range eggs
125ml/4½fl oz whole milk
2 spring onions, finely sliced
2 tbsp olive oil
60g/2¼oz instant mashed potato mix
40g/1½oz plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp lemon juice
For the topping
300g/10½oz smoked salmon
small bunch fresh dill

1. In a jug, whisk the eggs, milk, finely sliced spring onions and olive oil together.
2. Stir in the instant mashed potato mix, plain flour, baking powder and the lemon juice.
3. Heat a flat griddle and drop tablespoon-sized dollops of the mixture onto the hot griddle.
4. Cook for about 30 seconds a side, or until golden-brown and firm enough at the sides to flip.
5. Once you have made the pancakes, and they've cooled a little, tear off strips of smoked salmon and arrange the small slices on each pancake.
6. Decorate each salmon-topped pancake with a tiny feather of dill.

I LOVE this recipe. I just made the potato cakes to try them out. I only had two eggs, but one was large, and that seemed OK. My mixture made 5 cakes, fine for a starter as they are filling. They were hot and the onion still crunchy. Mmmm gorgeous. This will be my starter for Christmas dinner!

How brilliant to make these using instant mash. I've been slaving with fresh spuds all my life! Thanks for showing me the light lol These sound delicious, btw.
