Yield: 9 Servings
1 Cup Potatoes (grated)
1 Cup Mashed Potatoes
1 Cup Flour
2t Baking Powder
2 Eggs (lightly beaten)
¼ Cup Milk
Butter or Oil (for frying)
Melted Butter (as needed)
18- Smoked Salmon Florets (roll thin slices around your finger and twist)
4T Crème Fraîche (kind of like sour cream, but not as sour)
Fresh Chives (chopped, to taste)
1. Place grated raw potato in a clean cloth and twist to remove excess moisture.
2. Combine raw potatoes, mashed potatoes and eggs. Whisk flour, salt and baking powder. Fold into potato mixture. Add enough milk to make a batter.
3. Heat butter or oil in a heavy skillet on medium heat. Drop potato batter by heaping tablespoons into the hot pan. Brown on both sides, 3-4 minutes per side. Lightly brush each boxty with melted butter.
4. To serve, place 2 boxty potatoes on a plate. Top each with a salmon floret. Whisk creme fraiche and chives to a creamy consistency and lightly drizzle over the salmon. Repeat with remaining boxty potatoes and salmon.
