  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 16 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pkg smoked salmon
Potato Latkes:
  • 6 russet potatoes
  • 1 onion cut_into wedges
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • vegetabIe oil for fying

Method

Potato Latkes: Peel potatoes. By hand or in food processor and using shredder blade, alternately shred potatoes and onion wedges to make 6 cups (1.5 L). Transfer to colander. With hands, squeeze out as much liquid as possible and discard liquid. Transfer mixture to large bowl. Add egg, flour, salt and pepper; toss to mix.

In large skillet, heat 1/4 inch (5 mm) oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Scoop batter by 1/4 cupfuls (50 mL) into pan, flattening to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness and leaving 1 inch (2.5 cm) among latkes. Fry, turning once, until browned and crisp around edges, 6 minutes.

Drain on paper towel-lined baking sheets. Remove any cooked bits after each batch and heat more oil as necessary. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Cover lightly and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Remove paper towels and reheat in 450°F/230°C oven for 5 minutes.)

In bowl, whisk together eggs, water, green onions, salt and pepper. In large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat; pour in eggs and cook, stirring with spatula to form large soft curds, for about 3 minutes or until thickened and moist but no visible liquid remains. Serve with latkes and curls of smoked salmon.
