Skillet Chive Pancake with Gravadlax and Eggs

February 24

An altogether different way to approach pancake Tuesday this year and a really wonderful savoury pancake that can be served straight to table and dished out. If you can’t find sliced gravadlax, use smoked salmon. For a real treat track down the Goatsbridge Irish trout caviar. The trick to this pancake is patience. Once you pop the mixture in the pan put the lid on and don’t touch it until the timer rings.

Method
  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and chives, holding back a little to serve. Whisk in the eggs and milk along with half the butter.
  2. Heat a 23cm pan over a low heat. Add the remaining butter to the pan followed by the mix. Cover with a lid and leave to cook for 8-10 minutes. Don’t be tempted to peek.
  3. Flip and cook for another 5-6 minutes until cooked through and golden.
  4. While the pancake is cooking, bring a small saucepan of water to the boil over a high heat. Add the eggs and bring to a steady simmer. Simmer for 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of cold water then peel and halve.
  5. To serve, slice the pancake into wedges. Top with creme fraiche, salmon, watercress, egg, roe, remaining chives and dill. Alongside a little prosecco if you fancy.
