This party appetizer is simple once all the preparations are made. Pickerel Cheeks and Golden Caviar are available at Gimli Fish Market at 596 Dufferin Ave. and 625 Pembina Hwy. in Winnipeg.
Latkes (Potato Pancakes)
3 medium potatoes, peeled and shredded
1 onion, shredded
1/4 cup flour or maztah meal
salt and pepper
freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp paprika (optional)
Pickerel cheeks dredged in flour and vermouth or your favourite clear liquor.
Prepare latkes until golden brown and using cookie cutters, cut bite sized pieces from the pancake.
Sauté pickerel cheeks and deglaze with vermouth.
Top each latke bite with a pickerel cheek, cremé fraiche and golden caviar.
For my friends and family on the coasts and south of Winnipeg, try bits of sautéed Halibut cheeks, scallops and top with available caviar.
