Potato Rosti with Smoked Salmon, Scrambled Eggs and Oscietra Caviar

 

Prep time: 20 mins 
Cooking time: 30-40 mins 
Serves: 4

Ingredients 

  • 4 Medium size Potatoes (Sebago, Kestrel, Dutch Cream)
  • 150g Butter 
  • 200g Salmon 
  • 8 Eggs
  • 4 Tbsp Creme Fraiche 
  • 30g Oscietra Caviar 
  • Micro herbs for garnishing

Method

  1. Wash and peel the potatoes. 
  2. Grate the potatoes into a bowl using the thicker part of a box grater. Using a cloth, squeeze hard all the liquids of the potatoes until dry as possible. Place into a separate bowl.
  3. Melt the butter and only use the butterfat discarding the milk and water part that sits in the bottom of the bowl.  Add 3 Tbsp of the clarified butter, salt and pepper to the potato and mix through.
  4. Divide the grated potato mix into 4 pieces and roll them into a ball. Set aside. 
  5. Bring small frying pan to medium high heat, add ½ Tbsp butter and add 1 ball of potato to the pan. Flatten with a spatula until it reaches the edges of the pan into a pancake shape. Cook for 3-5 mins until golden brown and turn using a plate that fits on the pan. 
  6. Turnover and cook for a further 3-5 mins. Repeat if necessary for more color and until Rostis are fully cooked. Place Rostis on a baking tray to warm them up later. 
  7. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  8. Whisk the eggs and cook them in a nonstick pan with a touch of butter on medium heat until just cooked. Don’t overcook them so they are still a little runny.
  9. Place the potato Rosti into the oven and heat them up for 5 mins. 
  10. Serve the Rosti with scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, a dollop of Creme Fraiche and a generous amount of Oscietra Caviar. Garnish with micro herbs and enjoy.
