Potato Latkes with Spicy Mayonnaise and Smoked Salmon

A great recipe from www.GourmetKosherCooking.com for Hannukah, that fuses traditional Jewish cooking with Asian flair. Also a bit of a healthy twist on the potato latke.



  1. 1In a food processor, using the grater blade, grate the potatoes and onions. Pour into a strainer and strain about the extra liquid.
  2. 2In a large bowl, mix the potato-onion mixture with the eggs, salt and pepper.
  3. 3Heat oil in a large frying pan. When oil is hot, place small spoonfuls (about 2 tablespoons each) of the potato mixture in the pan and flatten slightly. Cook until crispy (3 to 5 minutes per side) and drain on paper towels. Can be frozen.
  4. 4To Assemble Latkes:
    Make latkes. Top with spicy mayonnaise and a slice of smoked salmon. Garnish with capers or tofutti or regular sour cream.
  5. 5Spicy Mayonnaise:
    Mix all ingredients in small bowl. Cover and chill.
