  7. 4. Heat griddle over moderate heat until very hot and spray with
  8. vegetable oil spray. Spoon 1-tablespoon mounds of batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form around the edges of the blini, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook the blini for about 30 seconds longer.
  9. 5. Transfer the blini to a platter
  10. 6. Toss the crab and avocado in dressing lightly
  11. 7. Top blini with a thin layer of sauce, then cucumber slice, avocado and crab mixture, then chive flower
Notes
  1. The pancake can be made a day ahead of time and then warmed up in the microwave just before adding smoked salmon to serve.
  2. Many people think buckwheat is a cereal grain. It is actually a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb & sorrel. It contains no protein glutens. Studies show buckwheat help lower the risk of high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
