Tiny Food: Mini Blinis with Salmon Tartare & Avocado

Tiny Food Recipe: Mini Blinis

If you are a fan of pancakes, crepes, mini crepes,  you’ll now join the club of blinis. This tiny food recipe of mini blinis with salmon tartare and avocado will charm you at a first sight (pinky promise they will) because they have been a classic of mine since 1992 (jokes on the 90s’, but for real a favourite for a long, long time!)

I have been a mini blini-obsessed since I first saw them at a party and I didn’t even know what they were, so right after googling “a cute mini pancake recipe”  I started cooking them and usually serving them when I have friends over. What I love the most about it, is how versatile they are, where you can add practically any topping as you go and still look so fancy but yet cute (like awwwww adorable cuuuuute)

Did you know a blin is a traditional Russian and Ukrainian pancake?

 They are made from wheat and served warmed with many garnishes (I picked the sweetest edible flowers at my farmers market) and avocados, because… (do I even need to explain avocados?)
