Method

 

Rinse the baby marrows and grate. Stir together with the egg yolks, salt, pepper, parsley, mint and feta and mix well.

In a large mixing bowl or using a blender, whisk the egg whites to stiff peak stage.

Stir the flour into the baby marrow mixture and then gently add the egg whites until well combined.

Using a non-stick pan, heat the pan and add a little cooking spray. Spoon some of the mixture into the pan and cook until golden, flip gently and cook until golden brown on both sides.

Place crumpets on warm serving plates, spoon cottage cheese on top and fold salmon ribbons last. Finish off with a grind of black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.
