  1. Melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Once combined, make a well in the dry ingredients and add the milk, egg and melted butter. Whisk until combined.
  3. Allow the batter to rest while heating a lightly oiled pan to a medium heat.
  4. Scoop the batter into the pan, using a ladle for each pancake. Cook each side for 3-6 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
  5. Once cooked, stack 3 – 4 pancakes on a plate. Add a small handful of pea shoots to the top of the stack, followed by crème fraîche and waves of smoked salmon.
  6. Finish with a final handful of pea shoots, dill, a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of salt and pepper.
