Wild Rice Pancakes with Smoked Trout and Creme Fraiche
Ingredients
1/2
cup milk
1/3
cup cornmeal
1/4
1 1/2
cups cooked wild rice, drained and cooled
1/2
teaspoon kosher salt
1/2
teaspoon ground black pepper
1
tablespoon snipped fresh parsley
 
Clarified butter or canola oil
4
6 ounces smoked trout, broken into pieces (or thinly sliced smoked salmon)
1/2
cup creme fraiche or dairy sour cream
2
ounces caviar (optional)
2
tablespoons fresh snipped chives
Directions
  1. In a large bowl whisk together milk, cornmeal, flour, and melted butter. Stir in wild rice. Lightly beat egg yolks with a fork and stir into wild rice mixture. Stir in salt, pepper, and parsley. In a small mixing bowl beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight); fold egg whites into rice mixture.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a little clarified butter. Ladle about 1/4 cup of batter onto heated surface and cook about 1 minute or until bubbles appear uniformly on upper side and bottom is browned. Turn pancake over and cook about 1 minute more or until bottom is browned. Transfer to a baking sheet and place in a warm oven while cooking remaining pancakes.
  3. Place pancakes on a serving platter. Top each with some smoked trout, a little creme fraiche, caviar (if desired), and a sprinkle of chives. Makes 10 servings.
