Crispy Potato Galette With Dill Cream, Smoked Salmon and Sturgeon, and Osteria Caviar (Home version with potatoes)

Yields: 4 to 6

Ingredients:

3 organic potatoes, peeled and grated

1/2 pound clarified butter

Kosher salt

Pinch of black pepper

1/2 cup crème fraîche or sour cream

3 shallots, minced

5 sprigs fresh dill, chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

1/2 pound smoked salmon, thinly sliced

1/2 pound smoked sturgeon, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 bunch fresh chives, chopped

3 ounces caviar

Toss grated potatoes in 1/4 pound clarified butter. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Heat 2 nonstick sauté pans over high heat until nearly smoking. Divide remaining butter between two pans. Add the potatoes evenly to each pan, and shape them into thick pancakes. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, then reduce heat. Sauté until almost golden brown. Use a spatula to check the underside of the pancake, turn over and cook other side until golden. Remove galettes from pans and warm in a 425-degree oven for 10 minutes.

Prepare dill cream: In a bowl, mix together shallots, dill, crème fraîche or sour cream, juice of 1/2 lemon and season with salt and pepper. Mix well.

Remove galettes from oven while still warm. Spread with dill cream and cover with slices of smoked salmon and sturgeon. Lightly brush the salmon and sturgeon with olive oil, then sprinkle with black pepper and remaining lemon juice.

Cut galettes into desired portions and garnish with chopped chives and caviar. Serve immediately.
