Place small pancakes in preheated oil on a frying pan. Fry until light-brown on both sides. Place on a plate.

Garnish the pancakes to your liking. Here are five options:

1. Spread hemp seed butter on a lightly cooled down pancake, then garnish with a tomato slice and a piece of avocado.

2. Grate a boiled egg and a carrot, add a handful of Iecavnieks flax seeds, mayonnaise, salt, pepper and mix. Form small balls from the salad paste, place on the pancake and cover with a spicy salted sprat.

3. Mix hemp seed butter with plain fresh cream cheese, forming a smooth paste. Smear the paste on the pancake and finish with shrimp and dill.

4. Place a cheese ball bite or a mini-mozzarella ball on the pancake and sprinkle with Iecavnieks flax seeds.

5. Spread hemp seed butter, a slice of salmon and a small dill twig on a lightly cooled pancake.
