Potato Latkas with Sour Cream and Smoked Salmon

-2 potatoes
-half a yellow onion
-1 egg
-a little all purpose flour
-peanut oil
-sour cream
-scallions or chives
-smoked salmon

Grate the potatoes (skin on is fine) into a large bowl. Using a strainer or mesh cloth, squeeze out as much juice as possible from potatoes.  Next, grate in the onion, add egg and if needed, add a little flour for thickening.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Heat a light coating of peanut oil in a shallow frying pan.  Form patties and fry for about 3 minutes per side.  Set on paper towel to drain excess oil.  In a small bowl, chop a couple stalks of scallions or chives.  Add the sour cream and mix.  To serve, put a spoonful of sour cream mixture on latka and top with smoked salmon.  Enjoy!
