Salmon pancake recipe

In this salmon pancake recipe we will first make ordinary pancakes (thin ones - crepes, not the thick American style pancakes) and then fill them with smoked salmon. This is a really cool recipe that turns pancakes from a dessert or breakfast into a full meal. So if you like pancakes and if you like salmon - give this recipe a try!

For this salmon pancake recipe we will need:
For pancakes:
250g plain flour
3 eggs
500ml milk
some butter

For salmon filling:
200g smoked salmon
200g curd
2 tbsp sour cream
grated lemon zest

Now let's get to work!

Salmon filling
First we will make the filling so it will be ready when the pancakes are baked. We want to fill them as soon as they are baked so they are still nice and warm.
1. Take a small bowl and mix in curd and sour cream.
2. Chop some chives and add them to the mixture.
3. Add lemon, salt and pepper and mix some more.

Just use your own taste to decide how much chives, lemon and salt&pepper you want to use.

As for smoked salmon - buy the thinly sliced one so you don't have to slice it yourself. If it is in thin slices then it is ready. Now let's make some pancakes.

1. Take a large bowl throw in the eggs. Beat them quickly, just to get a fairly even mixture. Then add flour, a pinch of salt, milk and 1/2 tsp butter.

2. Mix until you get a nice even mixture with no lumps. You can also add 3/4 of the milk before you mix the batter and then add the rest after the batter is mixed. This might be easier. Leave the batter for a few minutes.

3. Take a non-stick pan (what kind of pan should you use for pancakes?) and put it on high heat. Add a drop of butter on the pan to grease it. Do this every 2-3 pancakes, even if your pan is really god. This gives the pancakes a bit different texture.

4. Pour about 1/2 cup of pancake batter into the pan (this also depends on the size of the pan) and spread it evenly all over the pan so you get an even thin!! pancake. Spreading the batter for making thin pancakes takes some practice, but even if you are not the best at it pancakes will turn out fine... don't worry.

Salmon pancakes
1. Now take the just-baked-still-warm pancake and spread some crud mixture over the pancake.

2. Add one thin slice of salmon.

3. Roll the pancake and close it with a toothpick.

Eat them while they are still warm, and then let me know how do you like this salmon pancake recipe.
