Brunch Mashed Potato Cakes with Smoked Salmon

Brunch Mashed Potato Cakes with Smoked Salmon

Posted 2016-11-15 by finyfollow

No 11 in my series of brunch recipes has the potatoes cooked first, then mashed and made into potato cakes.

It was very filling, and the sour cream and smoked salmon worked very well with these cakes. I bought the wrong herb as wanted to put dill in this recipes so my photos do not have the dill showing!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients
175 g potatoes
75 g full cream milk
1 small egg
15 g plain flour
1 - 2 spring onions, chopped finely
1 tbsp oil
55 g sour cream or creme fraiche
1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped plus extra for garnish
75 g smoked salmon
1 egg to fry, optional

Method
  • Cook the unpeeled potatoes in boiling salted water for about 20 minutes, or until they are soft.

  • Drain and cool for a few minutes, then peel them.

  • Mash them with the milk, add salt and pepper to taste, and beat in the egg, flour and spring onions, thus making a batter.


  • Heat a non stick frypan, add a bit of the oil and make 4 or 5 potato cakes, using about 2 tbsp of the batter for each one.


  • Cook for about 3 minutes each side or until golden.

  • Drain on paper towel.

  • Mix together the sour cream and chopped dill.

  • Put the pancakes on the individual plates.


  • Top with the smoked salmon and a spoonful of the sour cream mixture.

  • Grind some black pepper over it and garnish with dill if using.

  • Fry the egg if using or you could hard boil it, and slice a few pieces over the smoked salmon.
