Salmon & Corn Blinis with Avocado & Caviar

smoked salmon and corn blinis with avocado and caviar

 

Ingredients:

1 x 425g can corn kernels, drained

2/3 C plain flour

3 eggs

100g cold smoked salmon, chopped

2 small ripe avocados, halved, stones removed, peeled, coarsely chopped

1 T fresh lime juice

2-4 drops red Tabasco pepper sauce

Olive oil spray

40g salmon caviar

¼ C fresh coriander leaves

 

Method:

  1. Reserve ¼ C of the corn. Place the flour, eggs and remaining corn in the bowl of a food processor. Season well with salt and pepper. Process, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally, for 3 minutes or until well combined. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the reserved corn and the chopped salmon.
  2. Place the avocado, lime juice and Tabasco in the clean bowl of a food processor. Season with salt and pepper. Process for 1 minute or until smooth. Transfer to an airtight container. Cover the surface with plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
  3. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with olive oil spray to grease. Heat over medium-high heat. Place five 1-tablespoon quantities of the batter into the pan, allowing room for spreading. Cook for 30 seconds each side or until golden. Transfer to a baking tray lined with paper towel. Repeat, in 5 more batches, with the remaining batter, reheating the pan between batches, to make 25 blini.
  4. Spoon the avocado mixture on top of the blini. Top with caviar and coriander leaves to serve.

 

Makes 25.
