Pub Classics:

Irish Boxty with Smoked Salmon, Sour Cream, and Chives

By Chef Deniz Tarakcioglu


  • 2lbs yukon gold potatoes
  • 160mL milk
  • 1 egg
  • 80ml flour
  • 300g smoked salmon slices
  • 300mL sour cream
  • 100mL chives or green onions, sliced


  • Peel the potatoes and cut only half into smaller chunks, cook in salted boiling water until fork tender, drain and dry in a strainer for 2 minutes. Return to pot and add ONLY 60ml of milk and mash until smooth. The other half of the potatoes are grated on a box grater on the coarse grate, sprinkle with a pinch of salt and let it drain in a colander for 10 minutes. Squeeze dry. In a small bowl whisk remaining 100ml milk, flour and egg until smooth. Add the liquid to the mashed potato pot with grated raw potatoes, mix until combined. Preheat a heavy skillet, add knobs of butter and ladle 60ml of the mixture. Spread out until 1/4’’ thick, fry on both sides until golden brown. Once the batch is done, lay slices of smoked salmon, and serve it with sour cream and chives.
