Method

Start by making the pancakes, or you could make these the day before and keep wrapped in the fridge.  

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. In a jug melt the butter then whisk with the milk and egg, pour into the flour and mix well until smooth.

Place a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-hot heat. Add a little sunflower oil and then a ladle full of the batter, making sure to swirl the batter around the pan. Cook for about 1 minute, flip and cook on the other side for 20-30 seconds. Repeat until you have 4 large pancakes.

For the filling, Cook the potatoes in salted boiling water until tender and drain. Chop the asparagus into bite sized pieces and cook for 2 minutes in boiling water, drain.

In a bowl mix the crème fraiche, dill and lemon juice. Stir in the potatoes and asparagus.

Place a pancake on your plate, spoon the potato filling onto the pancake, top with the flaked smoked salmon and serve with watercress.
