Potato Pancakes and Fried Salmon

Simple Delicious Meal for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner:


3 average sized potatoes
1 medium onions
1 and 1/2 of a "1/4" cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoons black pepper
1 1/3 cups vegetable oil or whatever you want to fry with.


Peel potatoes and grate into a bowl using the teardrop-shaped holes of a grater or in a food processor fitted with medium shredding disk.

Transfer potato mixture to a kitchen towel.

Try to wring out as much liquid (starch) from the potatoes as much as possible... (If you are lucky to have a 'potato ricer' this will be best to use)

After squeezing, transfer potatoes to a bowl.

Grate onion or use the food processor to mince. 

Add the onions to bowl with the potatoes and stir in flour, eggs, salt, and pepper until combined.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.

Fill a 1/4-cup (or larger, depending on the size you want) and carefully drop it into skillet, then flatten lightly with a heatproof spatula.

Form more in skillet and fry until undersides are golden, 2 to 3 minutes. 
(If it browns too quickly, reduce heat.) 

Turn over and fry until golden on other side, about 3 minutes more. 

Transfer to paper towels to drain.

TIP: If you want to keep them warm then transfer to a metal rack set on baking pan in oven that was preheating at 250F to keep warm. 

Delicious Tasting Fish Batter

Salmon or any other fish that you have, should be cleaned, sliced and marinated in seasonings overnight.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Whisk together lightly and soak fish both sides in the batter... 
Fry in skillet on low heat until golden.

Remaining batter can be freezed in a container for another time.

Happy Eating :)
