Smoked salmon blinis (or mini pancakes) are a perfect canape or appetizer for the holidays or any special occasion. SIBO friendly and 100% gluten-free.
4 eggs (ideally free-range)
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbs ghee or coconut oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
7 oz smoked salmon (no nitrates or sugar added)
Micro herbs to garnish
Break the eggs into a large bowl. Beat until combined. Mix in the almond meal, coconut flour, baking soda and baking powder until well combined. If the mixture is too dry, add in a small amount of water.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt one tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil in the pan.
Place a teaspoon of mixture into the pan. Flatten slightly with the back of the spoon. Repeat until the pan contains several blinis. Cook for 2 minutes on one side, flip and cook for 2 minutes on the other side, or until cooked through.
Remove and set aside. Repeat until all of the mixture has been cooked.
Scoop the avocado flesh into a bowl. Add the lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Mash until smooth.
To make the blini, place a small scoop of avocado on the blini and top with smoked salmon and micro herbs. These are a perfect appetizer and are best served immediately.
