A Pancake Day with a Savoury Flavour

Shrove Tuesday (or Pancake Day) is almost here.

However before you go cracking your eggs, mixing your batter and planning your sweet fillings in advance of Tuesday 17th February, we wanted to point out that you don’t have to rely solely on the traditional lemon and sugar or chopped banana and honey to mark the occasion.

In fact, for those trying to kick their sweet cravings (or who just want to try a savoury approach) then look no further as we’ve compiled our top three savoury pancake recipes.

Needless to say, they all feature smoked salmon however we’re confident that once you’ve gone down the savoury route, sweet pancakes simply won’t taste the same again.

Smoked salmon and scrambled egg pancakes

What better way to wake up to pancake day (or any other day for that matter) than with a breakfast that combines the much-loved scrambled eggs and smoked salmon with freshly prepared pancakes?

Ingredients (Serves: 2)

For the pancakes

  • 40g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 75ml milk
  • A glug of oil (to fry with)

For the smoked salmon and eggs


Mix all the pancake ingredients in a bowl until there are no lumps in the mixture and it’s of an even consistency.

Heat a pan (large enough to cook a typical sized pancake), add the oil and when hot, pour in enough mixture to thinly cover the surface area of the pan. Cook for a couple of minutes before ‘flipping’ after making sure the pancake has separated from the pan. Cook for a further two minutes or until cooked.

Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk. Once prepared, heat another pan, add a knob of butter and poor in the beaten eggs. Cook to taste.

Once cooked, take the pancakes and line with the scrambled eggs before placing the smoked salmon on top. Then roll before serving.

Pea pancakes with smoked salmon and a little green soup

We came across this recipe on a website called Cannelle Et Vanille and had to share it for it’s originality and for the fantastic images they use to illustrate the dish. For something very different and very tasty this Pancake Day, then this recipe is guaranteed to please.

Smoked salmon and goat’s cheese pancakes

Just like smoked salmon, goat’s cheese has a very distinctive flavour, which is why we think that this recipe works incredibly well.


  • 100g John Ross Jr smoked salmon
  • 1 x beaten egg
  • ¾ cup of milk
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 x onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 x teaspoons fresh dill (chopped)
  • 100g goats cheese (crumble)

Mix the egg, milk and flour into a bowl and whisk until you’ve created a consistent batter texture. Add one tablespoon of oil and the salt and whisk once more. You now have the batter. Cook your pancakes and then lay to one side.

Then, in a separate pan, heat the chopped onions until soft and then add the dill.

Once this is cooked, take your cooked pancakes and place the desired amount of onion mixture in the middle before adding some of the goat’s cheese and laying a slice of smoked salmon on top. Roll, serve and enjoy.
