salmon and potato pancakes

i had lots of leftover potato from making enough potato skins as part of supper and as leftovers.

growing up i always loved potato pancakes, and traveling - especially through china, seems potato pancakes are popular in other parts of the world too.

so in order to make potato pancakes - what i did do with the potatoes when i was making the potato skins was put the potato in a bowl with butter and mashed them.

so i divided the mashed potatoes into two bowls (and mixed an egg in with each half). then this is how i made variations...

asian style pancakes
- mashed potatoes (about 4 med/large sized potatoes worth
- egg
- tsp of minced garlic
- tsp of soy sauce
- tsp of fish sauce
- 1 green onion chopped
mixed all these ingredients together and made into patties/pancakes. pan fried in a tiny bit of oil. serve with siracha sauce if you want spicy, or soy sauce for savoury.

irish style potato pancakes
even simpler!
- mashed potatoes and egg as above
- 1 tsp of sugar
pan fry
serve with jam (yum!) or butter
i love these as a snack and great because they are gluten free so no chance of heartburn either!

i make a simple teriyaki sauce - ginger, soy sauce, minced garlic, and honey
marinate for about an hour
cook on foil in the oven at 375 until salmon flakes. use the marinade and pour on top of salmon before placing in the oven. use enough foil to tent the fillets so that they are covered enough to not dry out.

okay - this was a delicious supper. i love potatoes done as pancakes...seriously i could eat them all day.
