Smoked salmon blinis with an apple sour cream topping is a rehearsal for a starter for the Christmas menu. I saw this recipe on the website of the Flemish television cook Jeroen Meus. Almost immediately I decided to give it a try. His creations are always very easy and tasty, so that everyone can make them. The motto of his program is "daily food".
HIs recipes inspired me on several occasions. Another surprising combination with apples is the apple-potato salad. I also like his tagliatelle with chicken, zucchini and buffalo mozzarella. If you understand Dutch (or use google translate or so) make sure to visit his website "Dagelijkse kost".
Blinis are a traditional Russian pancake variation with buckwheat and yeast. The dough is much thicker than traditional pancakes. So the pancakes are smaller but thicker and are used for more savoury dishes. You can top them with very exclusive ingredients like caviar, but this is rather a working hero version with smoked salmon and a salad of apple, sour cream and fresh cheese.
