Salt & Vinegar Latkes
A dollop of crème fraîche topped with smoked salmon, caviar, or salmon roe takes these Salt & Vinegar Latkes to a whole new level of sophistication. Does it get any better?!
Preheat oven to 375° with a baking sheet inside.
Squeeze potatoes and onion in a clean kitchen towel, changing towels as needed, until thoroughly dry; transfer to a bowl. Stir in vinegar until combined.
Stir in egg and ½ tsp. salt, then stir in matzo meal just until combined.
Form potato mixture into 12 patties using an ⅛ cup (or 2 Tbsp.) measure, lightly flattening.
Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a sauté pan over medium-high. Fry six latkes until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate, season with salt, then transfer to preheated baking sheet and keep warm in oven. Fry remaining six latkes with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil.
Dollop latkes with crème fraîche; top with smoked salmon, caviar, or salmon roe and chives. Serve latkes immediately.
