Smoked Salmon with Irish Potato Cakes
Crispy and flaky on the outside and chewy on the inside, these Potato Cakes are a simple yet delicious base for the Smoked Salmon. All that is needed is to boil a Potato, mash it and mix with a couple of ingredients and you are set to cook them. The longest time is that needed to boil the Potato. Topped with savory Smoked Salmon and finished with rich, creamy Creme Fraiche flavored with Chives, this is one unique and delightful Breakfast treat! I cut the recipe in half when I made it today. There’s just me and Sparky and I can’t see wasting anything. The good news is that the Potato Cake recipe works just fine when cut in half. The below recipe is for the full amount.
