    These were a tasty treat! Pancake had a sweet corn flavor that paired well with the smoked salmon. A great party appetizer. I wonder how they would freeze to have ready for a quick treat?

    What a brilliant idea--to put smoked salmon on top of corn cakes! I used Trader Joe's Nova Wild Salmon. The recipe was even better than it sounded--the sour cream sauce was fantastic and totally made the dish. I'd even double the sauce for next time. We had it for a summer dinner, but would be great for a brunch or as an appetizer/party hors d'oeuvre. It only took one large ear of corn for me though to get 1 1/4 cups--not three. Also, Alton Brown and I remind you to make sure to scrape the cob of corn back and forth with the back of your chef's knife to get all of the good stuff off.

    Made these as a quick side for some barbecued ribs (without the salmon and sour cream); tasty and sweet. A squeeze of lemon into regular milk is a fine sub for the buttermilk.

    Easy to prepare and everyone loved them at the party. They were the most popular food we served.

    Tried this for dinner last night. I'm not a fan of smoked salmon though, so I cooked bacon in the oven, and served these with the bacon and some fresh garden tomatoes for a twist on BLT's. The cream sauce was delicious with all three. I also made some corn on the cob with mexican crema, and actually liked that on the corn cakes a little better than this sour cream. I will definitely make this again, but may tweak the corn cake recipe a little to make them more flavorful on their own.

    We thought these were great. The corn pancakes were tasty and they were nice with the smoked salmon. They made for a nice light dinner. I made them in winter, so I used frozen corn. I also subbed milk mixed with a little lemon juice for the buttermilk, rather than buying a whole giant thing of buttermilk (the only size the grocery stores near me sell).

    Brilliant corn cake! I used Silver Queen that my mom had "put up" in freezer bags during a summer rush. That's better than a christmas present! At any rate, this is one of my all-time favorite Cooking Light recipes and is now a permanent fixture in the rotation. We served without salmon but used fresh heirloom tomatoes, peas, bacon and zucchini for a summer stack. A must-try.
