Latkes with Herring Apple Salad - 150 Author: Canadian Living Credits: Latkes with Herring Apple Salad - 150

Sweet-sour pickled herring salad pairs beautifully with potato latkes. We like latkes best served hot and crispy, but if you want to make them ahead, they are also good served at room temperature.

  • Portion size 16 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 russet potatoes (2-1/2 lb/1.25 kg), peeled
  • 1 onion quartered
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • vegetabIe oil for frying
Herring Apple Salad:
  • 1 cup sliced pickled herring
  • 1/2 Granny Smith apple cut into matchsticks
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Herring Apple Salad: In bowl, gently toss together herring, apple and onion. Sprinkle with vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper; toss. Set aside. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Using coarse grater, alternately shred potatoes and onion quarters. Place in colander or sieve; with hands, squeeze out as much liquid as possible. In large bowl, stir together potato mixture, egg, flour, salt, baking powder and pepper.

In large skillet, pour in enough of the oil to come 1/2 inch (1 cm) up side of pan; heat over medium-low heat. For each latke, spoon scant 1/4 cup (50 mL) potato mixture into oil, pressing lightly with fork to flatten and leaving about 1 inch (2.5 cm) space between latkes.

Cook, turning once, until golden and crispy, 6 to 9 minutes. Transfer to paper towel–lined baking sheet. Serve topped with salad.
