Method

1. Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add eggs, milk and ricotta and whisk until smooth. Stir through the zucchini, lemon zest and chives. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Spray a large non-stick frying pan over medium–high heat. Spoon 1/4 cup of mixture into the pan per pickelet and spread to an even thickness. Cook for 2 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and repeat to make 10 pikelets, spraying with a little more oil between batches.

 3. Using a 7cm diameter heart-shaped cookie cutter, carefully cut a heart shape from each pikelet. Top pikelets with a dollop of extra ricotta, smoked salmon, dill, fresh lemon and lemon zest to serve.
