The pie is excellent for both Mardi Gras table and for any festivity as a starter. Just because it is very nice and tasty. Tender and festive. It may be cooked in advance and served to the table later.

Main ingridient: fish
Category: pancakes, muffins

Cause: for the holiday
Preparation: blender, fry



For pancakes:

  • Milk – 0.5l;
  • Egg – 1 pc; 
  • Flour – 8 tbsp (full);
  • Sugar – 3 tea spoons; 
  • Salt – ¼ tea spoon;
  • Oil – ¼ glass.

For filling: 

  • Red fish (low salt or cold smoked) – 300 g;
  • Cream cheese – 300 g;
  • Fat sour cream – 250 ml; 
  • Dijon mustard – 2 tea spoons;
  • Lemon juice – 2 tbsp;
  • Dill – small bunch.  

Step 1

Pour milk in the blender. Put on top flour, sugar, salt, egg and stir up. In the picture there are 2 eggs and 1 litre of milk because as a rule, I cook a lot of pancakes. For this recipe half a litre is enough. Leave the dough for half an hour.

Step 2

Prepare a filling. Slice the fish as for sandwiches.

Step 3

Then cut slices into sticks. You may blend in the blender but I prefer slices, not the flat mass.

Step 4

Add cream cheese in a bowl.

Step 5

Add sour cream and stir up with spatula. Add mustard.

Step 6

Add lemon juice.

Step 7

Finely chop the dill.

Step 8

Stir it to the cream.

Step 9

Add the fish.

Step 10

Add oil to the dough, mix up with a spoon, just a couple of movements.

Step 11

Heat the frying pan on medium heat. When the edges start getting gold, it’s time to turn over.

Step 12

Fry for a couple of minutes on the other side for a minute and a half.

Step 13

Put the pancake on a plate.

Step 14

Top it with cream. Approximately a full table spoon.

Step 15

I put the next pancake on a separate plate and only then I put it on top of the previous pancake to make the pie nice because I cannot always manage it taking the pancake directly from the frying pan.

Step 16

Keep shaping the pie in the same way coating every pancake with cream while it is hot to get it soaked well.

Step 17

The top layer should be just a pancake. Totally I had 12 layers.

Step 18

You may serve it warm immediately. If you want to serve it later as a starter, put it to the fridge for a few hours to get it soaked well. Enjoy such tender and tasty pie.

Bon appetite!
