Smoked Salmon Blinis with Rocket

Method

  1. Mix the flour, salt, pepper, into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Add the egg, mustard and about ¾ of the milk.
  3. Mix to a smooth batter, this should resemble a very thick cream consistency.
  4. Add a little more milk if the mixture is too thick.
  5. Pre-heat a non-stick frying pan with a couple of teaspoons of oil.
  6. Spoon in the mixture in teaspoon size amounts and cook for 1 minute.
  7. Cook until the top starts to bubble and is just set.
  8. Flip over carefully and cook for a further 1 minute, then cool.
  9. Break the salmon up in a small bowl. (Don’t make the pieces too small, though).
  10. Add the mayonnaise, rocket and finally the tomatoes.
  11. Carefully fold together, so the tomatoes do not break up.
  12. Pile the mixture onto the small blinis and serve.
