Salmon Pancake recipe

by Ben Panny

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

For this salmon pancake recipe we will have to have:

For pancakes:

250g plain flour, three eggs, 500ml milk, some butter

For salmon filling:

200g smoked salmon, 200g curd, two tbsp sour cream, chives, grated lemon zest, salt, pepper

Now let's get to work!

Salmon filling

Initially we'll make the filling so it's going to be prepared when the pancakes are baked. We would like to fill them as soon as they're baked so they are still nice and warm.

1. Take a tiny 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 determine how much chives, lemon and salt&pepper you wish 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 great 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 simpler. 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 seriously good. 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 distribute 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 distribute some crud mixture over the pancake.

2. Add one thin slice of salmon.

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

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