Healthy zucchini replaces potatoes in these flavorful latkes with smoked salmon. Make them for the holidays, or pair them with a tossed salad for a heart-healthy brunch or light lunch.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 oz smoked salmon chopped
  • 2 large zucchini roughly grated
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill plus sprigs for garnish
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup fat free sour cream for garnish


  • In a large bowl, combine eggs, olive oil and milk, and stir until blended. Add flour and whisk until smooth. Stir in smoked salmon, zucchini, dill and pepper (to taste).
  • Coat a large skillet or griddle with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
  • Pour batter by rounded tablespoonfuls onto skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until bubbles appear on top.
  • With a spatula, flip pancakes and cook another 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter, coating skillet with nonstick cooking spray between each batch.
  • Serve warm garnished with a dollop of sour cream and dill sprig.
