    1. Combine the flour, sugar, bicarb and salt. Mix in the milk and egg yolk until smooth.
    2. In another bowl, whisk egg white until soft peaks form. Gently fold into the blini mixture; add 2 tablespoons of oil and stir gently until combined.
    3. Brush a non-stick skillet with remaining tablespoon of oil; turn heat to medium-high. Drop teaspoonfuls of the blini mixture into pan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip and cook until brown.
    4. Set the cooked blinis aside to cool. You can also freeze them once cooled for use later.
    5. Combine the fresh goat cheese with 3/4 of the dill. Beat well till smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    6. Arrange the blinis on a serving tray. Top each blini with the cheese mixture, and then with the strips of salmon. Garnish with lemon wedges and the remaining chopped dill, and freshly ground black pepper, if desired.


    Use a soft, fresh goat's cheese or a spreadable goat's cheese. The cheese mixture can be made up to one day in advance, and chilled in the fridge till needed. If freezing the blinis, defrost at room temperature. Capers and / or cornichons also make a nice garnish.
