These are a perfect main course for brunch, just top each with a fried egg before serving. Or serve alone topped with sour cream and chives. They can be made into any size, but 4″ rounds seems to work the best.

Potato Pancakes with Smoked Salmon and Capers

  • 1 cup smoked salmon chopped fine
  • 3 tbsp capers chopped roughly
  • 2 cups shredded potato
  • 1/4 cup shredded onion
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Salt/pepper

Wrap potato and onion in a towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Mix everything together in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Oil a cast iron skillet and scoop out a spoonful of batter. Press it flat and fry over medium low heat until browned and done, flipping once. Continue with the rest of the batter and serve hot.

    I wonder if broiled teriyaki salmon would work as this sounds like a delicious dish. What is on top in the picture above?

  3. Eva Taylor says:

    These do look incredible for a brunch, love the idea of putting a poached egg on top. Kind of looks like Rösti potato the way you’ve browned the top so perfectly.

    Hello! This is Ian Bramlett of Pete’s Seafood Club and PAFCO and I was reaching out to you regarding a bloggers event we’ll be having at our Vernon, CA facilities October 8th at 11 a.m. to commemorate the launch of our online seafood program.

    These Salmon Pancakes seem right up my NPD chef’s ally. I’m going to have to get him to make the team some!

    I didn’t really gather where you are located, but I saw you have a penchant and passion for food; enough to get my tummy rumbling and finding inspiration from your recipes.

    If interested though, you and other esteemed members of the digital press are invited to tour our facilities, observe a demonstration of our production and packaging line and dine on a bountiful array of fresh and flavorful seafood.

    From ready to eat products like Shrimp Ceviche Salad and Ahi Poke Tuna to items where we’ve taken care of all the prep work like Lemon-Pepper Breaded Tilapia, Spinach and Feta Stuffed Salmon as well as Shrimp and Couscous Stuffed Swai, these are just examples of the products that will be on display and which we are able to ship affordably and reliably to patrons throughout the country.

    Should you have the time, ability and desire to participate, your presence would be greatly enjoyed.

    Thank you kindly and have a splendid day!

  16. These look outstanding! Latkes with salmon inside! What a great idea! I agree, the key is to get rid of any excess liquid. YUM. Best – Shanna
