Savoury pancakes with Tobermory smoked trout and horseradish cream

This is a delicious recipe from the Tobermory Fish Company that makes 10 pancakes for a starter or 24 miniature pancakes for canapés.


  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • A pinch of salt
  • 100g caster sugar
  • A splash of milk
  • A bunch of fresh dill and chives
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges
  • 1 tbsp of horseradish sauce
  • 3 tbsp creme fraiche
  • 200g Tobermory smoked trout


  • Add the sugar and flour to a bowl, then add the eggs and whisk.
  • The mixture will be very thick at first but add the milk bit by bit to thin it slightly.
  • Aim for the consistency of a thick batter.
  • Chop the herbs finely and add to the mixture (saving some chives to garnish at the end).
  • Stir well to distribute the herbs evenly.
  • Heat a non-stick heavy frying pan to a medium-high heat.
  • Spoon in a bit of the mixture one at a time to make the pancakes.
  • The size is up to you but Sally recommends mini canapé sizes.
  • The pancakes are ready to be flipped over when air bubbles become visible on the top of the mixture.
  • Flip over to quickly cook the other side for a few more seconds.
  • When ready, lay the pancakes on a serving platter.
  • Mix the horseradish and creme fraiche together and spread on all the pancakes.
  • Add a nice ribbon of smoked trout to the top of each one.
  • Sprinkle over the remaining chives and a grind of black pepper.
  • Serve immediately with wedges of lemon.
