How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together eggs, flour, baking powder, pepper, and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a medium bowl.

Step 2

Grate potato and onion, using the grating attachment of a food processor; spread mixture on a clean towel, and roll up. Wring towel to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Stir potato mixture into egg mixture. Grate turnip, and fold into potato mixture.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Drop batter by 2 tablespoonfuls into hot oil, keeping 3 inches between latkes. Using a spatula, flatten each latke to ⅓-inch thickness, and cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Sprinkle with a pinch of remaining ¼ teaspoon salt after turning. Drain on paper towels, and repeat with remaining batter and salt.

Step 4

Top each latke with a slice of smoked salmon and a dollop of crème fraîche. Garnish with dill, if desired.
