Peel a bulb onion and grate it. Peel potatoes and grate them finely. Squeeze extra liquid. Whip eggs. Salt and pepper them. Add the potato and onion mass. Stir the ingredients properly. Preheat olive oil in a skillet. Drop 2 tablespoons of the potato mixture onto the skillet and flatten with a spoon. Make about 5 more pancakes and fry over medium high heat until golden and crispy, about 6 minutes. Transfer the flapjacks to a paper towel to drain. Repeat the same procedure until you use the remaining potato mixture. Keep the cooked flapjacks warm.

Cut salmon fnely. Add sour cream and horseradish sauce. Mix the ingredients and transfer them to a blender. Beat the mass until smooth. Wash and cut spring onion finely. Combine the onion with the salmon paste.
