Latkes, rosti or reibekuchen are basically home made hash browns which have grated potato in them and they are not smooth or even like the shop bought ones.
My mother called them "reibekuchen" and this is the Cologne, Germany version, often enjoyed with either salt, jam or apple sauce. Rosti is more a Southern Germany term, and latkes are the traditional Jewish ones.
I had a lot of parsley growing in my garden so decided to do something totally different with this lot, and make a salsa out of parsley. The addition of the smoked salmon meant that I did not add any salt to any ingredients.
