Latkes w/ Salmon, Creme Fraiche & Caviar

Latkes are typically eaten by Jews during Hanukka. They are sometimes called potato pancakes. I don’t know how this started but our Italian Catholic family eats latkes for Christmas. I serve them as an appetizer with a slice of smoked salmon, a dollop of creme fraiche & topped off with a spoon full of caviar. For the kids I serve them with a side of apple sauce.
In this recipe I shred white potatoes, yams & onion & bind them with egg & some flour. They are then fried till golden. These crispy on the outside soft on the inside potato cakes are addicting. Who doesn’t love fried potatoes?
I’m not going to question why we make these on Christmas because frankly I don’t care, Some questions just don’t need to be answered.
