DIRECTIONS

  • THE DRESSING: Place the wholegrain mustard in a bowl, using a whisk, slowly add the olive oil, then add a squeeze of lemon and set aside.
  • THE PANCAKE MIXTURE: Mix together the eggs, flour, milk and chopped chives until smooth and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Heat a medium-sized non-stick pan over a high heat and using a piece of kitchen paper wipe the pan with some vegetable oil. Pour a ladleful of the pancake batter into the pan and swirl to cover the base. Cook for about 1 minute, then flip, cook for 30 seconds more, remove and place on greaseproof paper. Repeat until you've made all six pancakes, then set aside.
  • TO SERVE: Arrange handfuls of salad leaves in piles on the side of each of six plates. Fold the pancakes into four and sit next to the leaves. Loosely drape two slices of smoked salmon over the leaves and pancakes. Tuck two slices of lemon and a few chives under the salmon, then drizzle the mustard dressing over everything and serve.
  • Kevin Dundon's Notes for preparing this dish in advance: Make the pancakes the day before, stack them with a layer of greaseproof paper between each one and refrigerate.
  • My Notes: When I make this dish, I am not going to try to track down smoked wild Irish salmon, delicious though it may be. I shall be making it with the best local smoked salmon available.
