- Potato Latke Batter Recipe
- 6 oz smoked salmon sliced
- 6 oz smoked trout fillets sliced
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons fresh chives chopped
In large skillet, heat 1/4 inch (5 mm) oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Spoon in latke batter by tablespoonfuls (15 mL), leaving about 1 inch (2.5 cm) between each latke. With spoon, flatten to scant 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness. Fry, turning once, until browned and crisp around edges, 4 to 5 minutes.
Drain latkes on paper towel-lined rimmed baking sheets. Repeat with remaining batter, removing any cooked bits from skillet after each batch and heating more oil as necessary. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Cover lightly and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Remove paper towels and reheat in 450°F/230°C oven for 5 minutes.)
Meanwhile, cut salmon crosswise into 1-inch (2.5 cm) wide strips. Top each latke with 1/2 tsp (2 mL) sour cream and 1 salmon strip; sprinkle with chives.
