Mix flours with mineral water. Pour boiling water over baking soda and slat in a cup and whisk into flour mixture along with beaten egg. Heat olive oil in a crepe pan. Make two or three pancakes, cooking until golden. Transfer pancakes to a plate and cut into small blini with a cookie cutter.

On each plate, put two or three blini. Top with slices of smoked salmon artfully arranged - in the shape of a heart perhaps. Spoon a dollop of sour cream in the centre and finish with the roe. Sprinkle with dill and pepper to taste.
