Chef Nigel's Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Pancakes

Tuesday, 16 February 2021
It's Pancake Tuesday! So this week Chef Nigel brings us these beautiful Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Pancakes!


100g Self-raising flour
225ml Semi-skimmed milk
1 Medium free-range egg
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
150g cream cheese
2 Tsp lemon juice
120g smoked salmon
4 sprigs fresh dill


For the pancakes:
Whisk the self-raising flour, semi-skimmed milk and egg until you have created a smooth batter. Leave to stand for 20 minutes. Line a dinner plate with baking parchment. Place a 20cm non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add a little vegetable oil to the pan. Pour a ladle of batter into the frying pan, swirling it so it covers the base in a thin layer. Cook the pancake for 30-60 seconds, then flip it and cook the other side. Remove the pancake from the pan when cooked and place on the prepared plate. Repeat with the remaining batter until you have eight pancakes. Ensure you place baking parchment between each pancake, so they do not stick together. 

For the topping:
Mix the cream cheese with a squeeze of lemon juice. Season with freshly ground black pepper and spread on the pancakes. Top with slices of smoked salmon and scatter the fresh dill over the salmon. Enjoy!
