lemon butter, juice of two lemons, 4 oz. butter, salt and freshly ground black pepper

4-6 lettuce leaves, 16 slices of smoked salmon, ½ of a cucumber, slices, in ribbons with a vegetable peeler

To make the pancakes, place  flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Pisk egs, milk, lemon zest, and  water in another bowl. Mix the ingredients of the two bowls together. Melt a small amount of butter and pour a some of the batter (depending on how large or hunery you are) onto a well greased frying and tilt so that batter quickly covers the bottome of the pan evenly. Cook until golden brown on one side, then toss like a flapjack or use a spatula to turn and cook on the other side .

To make the lemon butter, heat the juice of the lemons in a small pan over medium; whisk in the butter in small pieces until melted and combined. Season with salt and black pepper.

To serve, place a pancake on each plate, and top with a lettuce leaf. 3-4 slices smoked salmon and place a cucumber ribbon on top. Spoon lemon butter around, but not on top of the pancake.

TIPS. Any pancakes left over can be eaten with maple sirup.
