Happy Paddy’s Day: Scent Leaf Blinis with Flaked Fish

by on March 17, 2015

I had a good plan to pair this with a Guinness – Palm wine concoction but I spread shards of glass and malted black liquid on some cream tiles this evening instead.

A bag delicately held, mindlessly dropped and dreams and thoughts are dashed.

Oh well, one less thing to make 🙁 and on to these green beauties.

I’m sure St Patrick would approve of these fragrant, coconutty ‘cakes, green in his tribute. And if he doesn’t, well too bad. My son, D ate a plateful of them and some more, with chicken and syrup.


I had mine with baked snapper – soft, juicy and flaked. Perched on pickled red onions. Simple and delicious.

The recipe employs my wondrous scent leaf paste. Here the texture of the coconut shines. You taste the slight chewiness in the pancake batter.

I begin with the makings of a regular pancake – flour, eggs, milk. And then the ‘green’.


The transformation is not as beautiful as the initial shock of oily green but…


I want this to be very ‘savoury’, so I add 1/2 a teaspoon of salt.

I heat up a pan and fry little babies. Not quite poffertjes but delicious still.

[yumprint-recipe id=’24’]And topped with a bit of extra ‘sauce’, they’re yum. And this is where you would/ could stop if you were vegan.


 Otherwise continue on. The sky? Limitless 🙂
