Potato Latke Sandwiches with Smoked Salmon

Latkes are a treat and while they’re not particularly low in fat, potatoes are a great source of vitamin C and salmon is packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

Instructions
  1. Put grated potatoes and onion into a bowl. Add egg, flour, salt, pepper and herbs. Mix well.
  2. Fill a skillet with 1/4 in. (0.5 cm) of oil. Heat over medium-high heat until oil is quite hot.
  3. Using a large spoon, carefully drop a large dollop of potato batter into the skillet and use a lifter to flatten it out into a roughly 3-in. (8-cm) diameter circle. You will need to make eight latkes in total. Try to keep them the same size for even cooking time and presentation.
  4. Fry them to a golden brown on both sides (this should take three to four minutes per side). Remove latkes and pat them dry with paper towels; keep warm.
  5. Combine light cream cheese, lemon juice and lemon rind. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Spread cream-cheese mixture on all eight latkes. On four of them, place a thin slice of smoked salmon and a few sprigs of arugula or other greens, and top with the second potato pancake. Garnish with leftover parsley.
