- 9.2 oz of plain flour

In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, caster sugar and salt. Bring to a simmer then remove from heat. Place the thinly sliced red onion in a jar or bowl and pour over the hot vinegar. Cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the yogurt and olive oil and mix until well incorporated.

Using a hand beater or whisk, beat the soft cows cheese until smooth and creamy.
Smear a generous spoonful of the whipped cheese on to each flatbread. Top with Regal salmon slices, pickled onions, capers, fresh herbs. Season with salt and pepper and serve with wedges of lemon.
