Recipe: Joachim Splichal's corn latkes with smoked salmon
Total time: 40 minutes

The delicate corn latkes that Joachim Splichal serves at Patina have been on the menu since the day the doors opened. Splichal layers them with fresh marinated salmon, but smoked salmon can be the perfect replacement. They are served with a sour cream sauce.


1 cup sour cream

1 red bell pepper, roasted and diced

1 tablespoon minced chives


3 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels (5 to 6 ears)


1 1/2 tablespoons minced shallots

1 cup heavy whipping cream

2/3 cup whole milk

2 eggs

1 cup unbleached flour

1 teaspoon baking powder


2 tablespoons minced chives

20 paper-thin slices smoked salmon

1/4 cup chopped chives
