2 eggs, separated
1/2 cup CarbQuik Baking Mix
2 tablespoons cornmeal
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch of cayenne pepper
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup diced red pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup sour cream
6 ounces smoked salmon, cut into thin strips

1. In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks, bake mix, cornmeal, salt, cayenne and cream until you create a smooth batter.

2. In a separate small bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into batter. Mix in red pepper and cilantro.

3. Put a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat and brush with butter. For each pancake, use 1 tablespoon of the batter mix and spread with the back of the spoon. Make four pancakes at a time.

4. Cook pancakes 1 minute until bubbles appear on surface; flip and cook about 30 seconds more. Transfer to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter.

5. Top each pancake with a small dollop of sour cream and a pre-cooked salmon strip.
