Sgambaro’s Salmon Gravlax on Buckwheat Blini

To make the batter gluten free use only the buckwheat flour.

2 – eggs, whites only
6 tbsp – buckwheat flour
6 tbsp – all-purpose flour
1 tsp – baking powder
Pinch – salt and pepper
2/3 cup – milk

10 slices – Sgambaro salmon gravlax
4 tbsp – crème fraîche
1 tbsp – chive wisps
Sturgeon caviar or micro greens for garnish

To prepare the blini, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt till firm peaks. In a separate bowl, mix the flours, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add the milk and mix until smooth. Whisk ¼ of the egg whites into the batter then fold in the rest of the egg whites.

Heat a crepe griddle or non-stick pan to medium and coat with oil. Spoon one teaspoon of batter on the griddle and cook till bubbles appear. Flip the blini and cook for another 20 seconds. Transfer to a rack to cool down.

To assemble, place the cooled blini on a serving platter and top each blini with a slice of gravlax neatly folded. Top each gravlax with ¼ tsp of crème fraiche and garnish with caviar or microgreens and chives.
