These rolls make a delightful easy-to-handle little package to accompany a welcoming drink as people gather for Christmas dinner.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2/3 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
250g salmon, sliced smoked
1 bunch chives, finely chopped
watercress sprigs, to garnish

Pancakes

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 cup plain flour
pinch salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
butter, for frying

Method

  1. To make pancakes, sift the flour with the salt into a bowl. Whisk in the egg. Stir in half of the milk, until smooth. Stir in the remaining milk and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a 20 cm non-stick frying pan over a moderate heat. Brush with a little melted butter. Add ¼ cup of the batter and tilt the pan to cover the base. Cook for 1 minute, until bubbles appear. Turn the pancake and cook for a further minute. Repeat with more melted butter and the remaining batter to make 6 pancakes.
  3. Lay a double thickness of plastic wrap on a work surface and top with two pancakes, side by side, overlapping slightly. Spread with a third of the crème fraîche and top with a third of the smoked salmon slices, then a third of the whole chives.
  4. Use plastic wrap to help roll the pancakes up tightly like a Swiss roll. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes. Repeat with the remaining pancakes, crème fraîche, smoked salmon and chives.
  5. When ready to serve, cut into 3 cm slices and arrange on a serving platter. Garnish with sprigs of watercress and serve.

Tip

  • Pancakes can be made a day ahead. Store in a freezer bag in the freezer or refrigerator with squares of greaseproof paper between pancakes, until required.
