Sour cream waffle batter

  • 1 egg
  • 200 g sour cream
  • 40 g melted butter divided
  • 120 g flour
  • 125 ml water (better carbonated)
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Shrimp topping

  • 500 g hand peeled shrimps
  • 5 tbsp creme fraiche
  • 1 red onion
  • 3 tsp fish roe of choice
  • fresh chives
  • 5 lemon slices (optional)


  • Separate the egg white from the yolk. Mix the egg white until stiff, about 2 minutes at medium speed. In another container combine the sour cream, yolk, water and 30 g of melted butter. Mix at low speed to combine. Sift in the flour and salt and mix at medium speed until homogeneous, about 1 minute. Set mixer aside and gently fold in fluffy egg whites.
  • Warm the waffle iron to high temperature. Brush remains of melted butter onto the waffle iron with a pastry brush. Pour about 1/5 of batter onto the centre of the waffle iron and close the top - batter will spread under the weight of the top iron. Cook waffle until golden brown, circa 3 minutes. Repeat until all batter is used, keep waffles on a cooling rack to preserve crunchiness.
  • Spread 1 tbsp of creme fraiche over the centre of a waffle. Top with 100 g of drained peeled shrimps. Finely mince the red onion and chives and add a sprinkle of red onion, as well as chives, on top of the shrimps. Top with a half teaspoonof fish roe and a lemon slice if desired. Repeat on all 5 waffles.
