Corn Pancakes and Smoked Salmon

serves 2

When fresh corn floods onto the markets in early July, we enjoy it first as corn-on-the cob. But by August, after we've had our fill of corn-on-the-cob, we start thinking about other ways to enjoy it during the rest of the corn season. We've experimented with cold salads using cooked corn kernels mixed with chopped red peppers, red onions and cilantro, baked corn pudding and corn pancakes.

Here's a light Sunday Supper built around delicate and light corn pancakes. We used these corn pancakes in a composed dish alternating them with pieces of smoked salmon around the perimeter of the plate and with a salad of cherry tomatoes and thinly sliced cucumbers in the center. This is very simple summer Sunday Supper.
