Beetroot and potato cakes with smoked salmon

My love for beetroot is one of those things, which identify me as Polish 🙂

Beetroot and potato cakes with smoked salmon

We Poles eat quite a lot of beetroot and in various forms. There is none of us who do not regularly eat a beetroot salad or a cold soup, and I will not even mention the red borscht.

We also like potatoes, this is why I decided to combine these two vegetables together and create a tasty recipe.

Basically, I made a simple cake, which I served with smoked salmon and horseradish sauce.

If you decide to try this recipe, I encourage you to share photos in the Comment section.

Bon Appetit 🙂

    Horseradish sauce:

    • 2 tablespoons of horseradish from a jar

    Additionally, fresh dill for serving.

  • Grate the cooked beetroot on a large mesh grater. Press the potatoes through a musher. Combine the beetroots with the potatoes then add salt, pepper, egg and starch. Mix thoroughly.

  • Instead of horseradish from the jar you can also use fresh ones but be careful as it will have a stronger flavour.
