• 4 large potatoes, peeled and grated

• 10ml cake flour
• 100ml creamed cottage cheese

1 Squeeze any excess liquid from the grated potato then put the potato into a large bowl. Whisk one egg and stir into the potato. Add the spring onions, flour and 30ml cottage cheese. Season to taste.
2 Heat a thin layer of oil in a large frying pan. Spoon the mixture into the pan. Cook over a medium to low heat until crisp, then hold a large plate over the pan and invert to turn the potato cake over. Fry the other side.
3 Fry the remaining eggs. Cut the potato cake into wedges. Serve topped with an egg, smoked salmon trout and a dollop of the reserved cottage cheese, with a lemon slice alongside. Garnish with rocket.
