I've got no idea if you like pancakes, but I have to confess that I love all sort of them: both sweets and savoury ones, with cheese, pumpkin, potatoes, spinach and other vegetables - all of them, for me, are absolutely delicious. My attraction to the pancakes has undoubtedly something to do with my origins. Where, if not in Poland and other Eastern Europe countries, this delicacy is playing one of the main roles in everyday meals.
Spain is definitely not a pancakes country, well maybe sometimes they eat the sweet ones - It has just come to my mind that on Gran Canaria they prepare tortitas de carnaval with anise and raisins - and for sure you can find more of this regional examples, but one thing is certain: pancake is not a meal of this place.
A little bit against the Spanish tradition, today I suggest smoked salmon, avocado and tomato salad with fresh coriander, served on very cheesy pancakes with chives.
Ingredients (for 4-5 small pancakes):
140 g dry cottage cheese
20 g flour
1 tablespoon chopped chives + one teaspoon for serving
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small avocado
4 cherry tomatoes
70 g smoked salmon
1 tablespoon chopped coriander
1 teaspoon lemon juice
salt, freshly ground black pepper
Crash the cheese with a fork, add flour, egg and chives. Mix well, adding salt and pepper to taste. Divide the mixture into 4-5 parts and put them into the frying pan with a hot oil in it. Flatten them to create round pancakes. Fry until golden brown on both sides.
Cut the avocado into small pieces. Add lemon juice, tomatoes (cut into cubes), salmon teared into pieces and chopped coriander. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Before serving sprinkle with chopped chives.
