The absolute perfect hors d'oeuvre you can also make these silver dollar pancakes into larger, classic, heartier sized latkes by using up to ¼ cup of batter. Of course the fry time will increase to about 3 to 5 minutes per side.
Prepare Manischewitz® Potato Pancake batter according to package directions. Heat ¼ inch olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Drop 1 tablespoon of batter per pancake into the hot oil (careful not to overcrowd the pan), and lightly press down to flatten. Place a piece of salmon over each pancake and top with another tablespoon of the batter. Gently press down on the pancake to flatten again and fry until golden brown about 2 minutes on each side. Drain pancakes on a paper towel lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with a dollop of crème fraiche and a sprinkling of chopped chives-
