The best recipe to serve at your Hanukkah dinner, these silver dollar pancakes are fried to perfection and burst with flavor. If you want them to be a bit heartier, use up to 1/4 cup of batter and increase the frying time by a few minutes.

  • 1 (6-ounce) box Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix
  • 1 (4-ounce) package smoked salmon, cut into 10 pieces
  • extra virgin olive oil, for frying
  • 1/2 Cup crème fraiche
  • fresh chopped chives, for garnish


​​​​​Prepare Manischewitz Potato Pancake batter according to package directions.

Heat 1/4 inch olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.

Drop one tablespoon of batter per pancake into the hot oil (careful not to overcrowd the pan), and lightly press down to flatten.

Place a piece of salmon over each pancake and top with another tablespoon of the batter.

Gently press down on the pancake to flatten again and fry until golden brown about two minutes on each side.

Drain pancakes on a paper towel lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining batter.

Serve warm with a dollop of crème fraiche and a sprinkling of chopped chives.
