Salmon with blinis pancakes

Blinis are small pancakes and I find them very delicious with salmon. Especially in hot summer weather blinis make a very good meal. In France, you can buy them in the supermarket but home-made tastes always better, of course. You can also make a sweet variation with cinnamon, apples and sirup.


1 pack smoked salmon (ca. 1oog or 4 slices)

1 pack mache salad

1 small onion

1 lemon

A handful of cocktail tomatoes

Creme fraiche

For the pancakes:

2 cups flour

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/2 pack or 1 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs

1 cup milk

1 tablespoon olive oil

A pinch of salt

For the vinaigrette:

Olive oil

Balsamic vinegar

Salt, pepper, garlic



1) Wash the salad and the tomatoes and dice the onion.

2) For the pancake dough, put the flour, the bread crumbs and the baking soda in a bowl, then mix with the eggs, the milk, the oil and a pinch of salt.

3) Put aside. Meanwhile prepare the vinaigrette: Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil with 3 tablespoons of dark balsamic vinegar. Season with salt, pepper and finely chopped garlic, add a sip of cream.

4) In a hot pan, pour 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil and fry the blinis.

5) On a plate, garnish the blinis with creme fraiche, a slice of salmon, the onion dices, a slice of lemon and arrange your salad on the side.
