Smoked Salmon Blintzes With Sour Cream And Chives

1 recipe batter
1 1/2 cups flour, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 eggs
1 1/3 cups milk
1 cup water
3 tablespoons finely chopped chives
1 recipe filling
16 ounces dry curd cottage cheese
16 ounces small curd cottage cheese
3 egg yolks
1 lemon zest (about 1 1/2 teaspoons)
2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
1/2 pound Nova Scotia lox, sliced and finely diced
3 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons corn oil, divided
1 pint sour cream

Resift the flour with the salt, baking powder, and pepper into a large bowl. In a separate bowl beat the eggs, and then add the milk, water and chives. Make a well in the sifted ingredients, pour in the liquid ingredients, and combine with a few strokes. Ignore the lumps, they will dissolve when you stir the batter before making the crepes. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes at room temperature. While the batter is resting make the filling. In the work bowl of a food processor combine the two types of cottage cheese, the egg yolks, lemon zest, and pepper. Process for one minute. Remove to a medium-sized bowl and gently stir in the lox and chives. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Using a 5 to 6-inch crepe pan make the crepes. Allow about 3 tablespoons of batter per crepe. Have the pan well-heated before beginning. Using about 2 tablespoons of the oil, brush the pan
with a little of the oil before adding batter each time. Cook each crepe on one side until lightly browned, then turn and cook just a few seconds on the other side. Remove to waxed paper to cool. As the pancakes cool, stake between sheets of waxed paper. Divide the filling among the crepes, allowing about 1/4 cup per crepe. Fold up envelope-style, by first folding the bottom to cover the filling, then folding over the two sides. Allow the seam to be on the bottom of the blintz. (The blintzes can be made to this point ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen.) In a 10-inch skillet heat one tablespoon each of the butter and oil. Sauté the blintzes over medium heat, allowing them to brown nicely on both sides. Add more butter and oil to the pan as needed. Keep warm in a 200°F oven while completing the batches. When ready to serve, stir the sour cream until smooth and creamy. Place two blintzes in the center of the warmed plate, spoon sour cream over them and garnish with the chives. Serving Size: 12

1 teaspoon sweet chili sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt

Gently heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a fry pan and pan fry the salmon fillet for 2-3 minutes on each side or until they are just cooked. Place the fillets on a chopping board and spread a little wasabi over each. Cut in finger-sized strips. Take 1 sheet of phyllo (keep the remaining sheets covered with damp absorbent paper) and brush with olive oil. Top with another sheet and cut in 3 strips. Place a piece of salmon on one end of a strip of filo and roll up tucking in the edges. Brush the end with a little more oil to seal. Repeat with the remaining pastry and salmon. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Place the rolls, seam-side down, on baking trays and bake for 15 minutes or until golden. To make the dipping sauce, place kiwifruit, ginger, honey, chili sauce and salt in a food processor. Pulse until roughly blended. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper. Pour into a bowl and serve with hot wasabi salmon.
