  • 6 desiree potatoes, peeled, grated
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) canola oil
  • 6 slices smoked salmon, halved
  • Creme fraiche, to serve
  • Salmon roe, to serve


  • Step 1
    Place potato in a sieve and press down to extract as much water as possible.
  • Step 2
    Combine flour, baking powder, onion and parsley in a bowl. Season well with salt and pepper. Add eggs and potato to flour mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Step 3
    Heat oil in a non-stick frypan over medium heat. Place 2 heaped teaspoons of mixture in the frypan for each pancake, leaving room between each one (you will need to do this in batches).
  • Step 4
    Press to flatten and cook 1-2 minutes on each side until golden. Transfer to a plate and keep warm while you cook the remaining mixture.
  • Step 5
    To serve, top each pancake with some smoked salmon, a dollop of creme fraiche and some salmon roe. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
