I love me some latkes!

I’ve been meaning to make potato latkes since I saw a recipe posted before Hannukah. I’m not Jewish, I just like the look, and the idea of savoury “pancakes” for dinner. So tonight was the night!

The recipe took a bit of fiddling with, but I got it to work, and was most pleased with the results as they cooked – it was easy to do them in the oven.

The trick was, we were having fish with the latkes, so the usual applesauce accompaniement didn’t make sense. I adapted a Caribbean mango condiment to serve with it and voila! If I do say so myself, it was a delicious meal. I included some fresh spinach, my hubby made a sort of salmon slider – we both enjoyed it immensely. 

I’ll post the adapted recipe tomorrow – just didn’t want to miss my commitment to make a daily entry. 

Happy cooking!

  1. Not an easy find, fresh made latkes. Even in Winnipeg these days they are premade and crisped for the plate. Goldeye and latkes! Ahh, memories.

    Please, don’t forget to post that recipe. Adapted for the oven is so perfect. No mess except from the ministrations of the cook. And, thanks for doing all that mummbling for us all as you adapted. And that salmon/mango looks pretty nice too. Funny how some of us love that hint of fruit with our protein!
