Potato Pancakes with Lox

This is a really easy recipe that comes out looking really good. It doesn’t take long at all, but it looks really professional when it’s done.


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (more if needed)
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1/2 c light sour cream
  • package of lox (or sushi-quality salmon, lox, caviar, etc.)
  • lemons


  1. Shred potatoes (or just buy preshredded ones) and pat dry. As for type of potato to use, that’s up to you. Idaho, red, sweet, mix and match. It’s all good.
  2. Once shredded, pat really good with paper towel. Get as much moisture out of it.
  3. Next, make little patties and fry them up. Warm up the oil and cook on low to medium heat. Brown on each side (about 10 minutes). If your potatoes don’t stick well, try adding an egg and a little flour, but I prefer them au naturale.
  4. Once fried up, place on paper towel to get rid of the excess grease.
  5. Top with some sour cream and a piece of lox on top. Then grate a little lemon zest on top and serve.

NOTE: You can also add some onion, green onion, chives or any fresh herbs to your pancake mix to enhance the flavor. Totally up to you but delicious either way.
