100gm mascarpone

2 tablespoons horseradish cream

squeeze of lemon juice

few drops Tabasco Sauce

500gm Agria potatoes, peeled, boiled in well salted water until tender then mashed

3 tablespoons flour

3 eggs plus 4 extra egg whites

50ml cream

50ml milk

½ teaspoon salt

freshly ground black pepper

butter for frying

small bunch watercress, washed and drained

200gm sliced smoked salmon


Mix the mascarpone, horseradish cream, lemon juice and Tabasco together, taste and adjust seasoning, taste and adjust seasoning to taste.  Set aside.

Put the mashed potato, flour, eggs and egg whites, cream, milk, salt and pepper into the food processor and blend for 30 seconds.  Pour into a jug that your ladle fits into.

Preheat the over grill.  Heat a small (15cm), heavy pan on the stove and add a knob of butter.  Pour in a ladleful of batter so it is around 5ml deep and cook until the first side is well browned then put the pan under the grill to do the top until it puffs up and browns.  (If you do not have such a pan then you can get fairly circular small pancakes in an ordinary pan by pouring a single ladleful into the centre of the buttered pan and letting the circle form itself.  Do not swirl).  Keep the pancakes warm and serve with the first-cooked side uppermost.  Place a pancake on each plate, spread with watercress then top with salmon slices and a neat dollop of the horseradish mascarpone.

Makes 6-8.
