Blinchiki (Russian-style Pancakes)

Blinchiki (Russian-style Pancakes)

I was taught this Russian pancake recipe but lost it so I made it up myself. This pancake's filling is a salmon and egg salad. Use fillings of your choice.

Ingredients: 4 blinchiki

☆Bread (strong) flour
100 g
200 ml
1/2 teaspoon
3/4 tablespoon
150 g (about 2 fillets)
Boiled egg
1/4 medium
20 g
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Make hard-boiled eggs. After bringing the water to boil put the eggs in and cook for about 10 minutes. In this picture you can see three but I use only 1 for this recipe.
2. Make the pancake batter. Mix the egg, salt and sugar. Stir in half of the milk.
3. After stirring sift the flour into the mixture. Mix until smooth.
4. After mixing add the rest of the milk. Stir until smooth.
5. After stirring let the mixture rest. Meanwhile make the filling.
6. Remove the skin of the salmon. Cook the salmon in a microwave and leave to cool. Break up the flesh into small pieces.
7. Heat the butter in a frying pan and add the onion. Fry until wilted and add the salmon. Salt and pepper.
8. Chop the egg finely. Mix the egg with the fried onion and salmon.
9. Pour the pancake batter into the pan and spread thinly and evenly. Cook both sides.
10. Place the filling onto a pancake. Fold in the bottom, the left and right, then the top.
11. This is done. Transfer this carefully to the frying pan to warm up. Transfer to a serving dish.
12. You're all set! This pancake goes well with different sauces. I used a mixture of ketchup, mayonnaise and grainy mustard this time.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to use salmon to make a sumptuous dish so I made Russian Blinchiki.
