“Seems gourmet but it isn't nearly hard enough to qualify! It's easy. really tasty and very impressive as an hors d-oeuvres. As you can probably guess from my other recipes, I love salmon and this one showcases it nicely. You really need to use good quality, fresh ingredients for this one, even though you use pancake mix! You can make your own pancakes if you wish, but there really is not a big difference - you just need to make sure that you get 30. Enjoy!”
