METHOD:

FOR THE SEAWEED TARTAR:
Re-hydrate the Wakame in warm apple cider (or water) for 3-5 minutes. Put all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. ‘Pulse’ for a few minutes to get a coarse but homogeneous mixture.
Note: seaweed tartar will keep for a few days in a jar in the fridge.

FOR THE CREPES:
To prepare the crepe batter, whisk all ingredients vigorously until the batter is completely smooth; allow to rest in the refrigerator for 2 hours before making crepes.
To make the crepes, put a little butter in a crepe pan or a large skillet over low-medium heat. Add 3 tbsp of batter to the pan and swirl until the bottom of the pan is covered. Cook for about 1 minute, or until the crepe is slightly moist on top and golden underneath. Loosen the edges of the crepe. Slide a spatula under it, and gently flip it upside down into the pan. Cook for 1 minute and transfer to a warm plate. Repeat with the remaining batter.

To serve, lay one crepe on a plate and spread some lime cream, sprinkle with chopped chives. Top with slices of smoked salmon and garnish with seaweed tartar to taste (1 tsp).

Tips: Seaweed tartare is lovely on fresh vegetables like celery boats, pieces of colourful capsicum,  endive leaves, red radicchio leaves, courgettes, cucumber & radish slices or half cherry tomatoes.  Also lovely on ciabatta slices, crostinis or pita crisps.

Resting the pancake batter for two hours is necessary to get the consistency required for a very thin pancake, mainly it ensures even hydration of the ingredients and let them ‘relax’ for a more tender pancake.
