Back to Recipes Listing           Episode: 318           Episode Name: Stack it with Style         

Ingredients:

Makes 2 Stacks

4 ears fresh corn, cooked
3 eggs
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
½ pound Salmon fillets, cut into 4 slices
6 large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tail-off
2 Tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
6 Tablespoons sour cream
2 teaspoon chives, chopped
4 Tablespoons watercress leaves
4 ounces smoked salmon
2 teaspoon caviar (optional)



 

 

Directions:

  1. Slice the kernals off the corn cobs.  Place eggs and corn kernals in blender and pulse until almost smooth, but still slightly chunky.  Mix in salt, pepper and flour.
  2. On a greased griddle or nonstick skillet over medium heat, spoon 2 tablespoons of batter to make each cake – should make 6 total.  Cook pancakes for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
  3. Brush the salmon and shrimp with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Sear on griddle or nonstick skillet for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
  4. To assemble, place a pancake on plate and spread 1 tablespoon sour cream over it.  Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon chives and top with 2 of the salmon pieces and 1 tablespoon watercress.  Top this with another pancake, and spread another tablespoon of sour cream over it.  Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon chives and top with 3 prawns and 1 tablespoon watercress.  Top with a third pancake.  Place 2 ounces smoked salmon, 1 tablespoon sour cream, and 1 teaspoon caviar on top of third pancake.  Repeat for second stack and serve.

Secrets:

    • This makes an excellent breakfast item
    • Scallops would also go great with the salmon and corn pancakes in stead of shrimp.
