What are blini? So glad you asked. These classics are thin Russian pancakes, similar to crepes, that can be made savory or sweet. Our version of these savory silver-dollar serving pieces are topped with smoked salmon and sour cream, served with a side of simple but amazing Persian cucumber-radish salad, and scrumptious scrambled eggs. It’s both low-cal and lovely.

Recipe Steps

  • 2 Mixing Bowls
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and slice radishes as thinly as possible. Trim and, using a peeler, shave long ribbons of cucumbers. Cut chives into ¼" lengths. Peel and halve shallot. Slice into thin strips like sticks (julienne).

  • Step 2 - Make the Blini Batter
    2

    Make the Blini Batter

    Whisk together 2 Tbsp. egg, milk, 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Reserve 2 Tbsp. flour to adjust consistency. Add remaining flour to egg-milk mixture and stir to combine. Mixture should be slightly thinner than pancake batter and should fall in a thin ribbon when whisk is lifted out of bowl. If batter seems too thin, whisk in reserved flour 1 tsp. at a time. If batter seems too thick, whisk in 1 tsp. water at a time.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Blinis
    3

    Cook the Blinis

    Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil, swirl around pan, and wipe out. Add 1 Tbsp. batter per blini, flipping onto second side after 1-2 minutes, or when blinis are slightly browned. Cook in batches until you've made 12 blinis. You will likely have extra batter. Reserve on a plate and keep warm. Wipe pan clean.

  • Step 4 - Make Cucumber-Radish Salad & Scramble Eggs

    Make Cucumber-Radish Salad & Scramble Eggs

    In a mixing bowl, whisk together vinegar, sugar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add radishes, shallot, and cucumber ribbons. Toss to coat. Return pan used to cook blinis to medium heat. Add ½ tsp. olive oil and remaining liquid eggs. Stir constantly until eggs are set, 2-3 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Remove to a plate and prepare to serve.

  • Step 5 - Plate the Dish
