Blini with Smoked Salmon

  • Preparation Time15 mins
  • Cooking Time20 mins
  • DifficultyEasy
40g buckwheat flour
95g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
210ml milk
1 extra-large egg
115g unsalted butter, clarified, divided
225g smoked salmon, thinly sliced
50g creme fraiche or sour cream
Fresh dill sprig, for garnish
1) Combine both flours, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and 15g of the clarified butter, then whisk into the flour mixture.

2) Heat 15g of the clarified butter in a medium saute pan and drop the batter into the hot skillet, 1 tbsp at a time. Cook over medium-low heat until bubbles form on the top side of the blini, about 2 mins. Flip and cook for 1 more min, or until brown. Repeat with the remaining batter. (I clean the hot pan with a dry paper towel between batches.) Set aside.

3) To serve, top the blini with a piece of smoked salmon. Add a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprig of dill.
