Sauerkraut for gourmets : There’s no getting around some prejudices. For example, that sauerkraut doesn’t fit into fine cuisine. Hearty pancakes made of potatoes and sauerkraut, topped with smoked salmon and cream.

1 Peel the potatoes and cook them in salted water for 20-25 minutes.

2. in the meantime stir sour cream or crème fraiche or sour cream until smooth, season with salt and pepper. For the dough, stir flour with eggs and milk. Drain sauerkraut in a sieve, squeeze well and chop coarsely with a kitchen knife. Drain the potatoes and press them through a potato ricer into the flour mixture. Add the sauerkraut and fold in well. Season with salt, pepper and sugar.

Heat clarified butter in a large frying pan. Place the dough in the frying pan in the form of pancakes about 8 cm ø and toast over medium heat for 1-2 minutes until golden. Turn the pancakes to the other side and roast for another 1-2 min.

Arrange the sauerkraut pancakes on plates, add a blob of cream and top with smoked salmon. Garnish with dill to taste.

Drink tip: dry white wine (e.g., sauvignon blanc).
