Spicy Salmon with Avocado Cucumber Strips

20170721_200931

I first saw this recipe on Asassyspoon , I just had to give it a go as I love Salmon and Avocado so whats not to like!  I changed it ever so slightly to suit my tastes and experiment. I also haven’t invested in a spiralizer yet so its cucumber strips instead of noodles…lol!

 

Makes 1 portion – obviously add quantities for more.

 

2 Salmon Fillets – make sure its good quality Scottish Salmon…lol!

1 tsp chilli powder

1 tsp rainbow peppercorns – ground

1 tsp ground cumin

2 tbsp olive oil – good quality

1/2 cucumber

Salt & pepper to taste

 

For the dressing:-

1/2 avocado

1/2 lemon juiced

1/2 garlic clove  – crushed

Handful Dill – freshly chopped (or you could use parsley)

1/2 chilli – diced or 1/2 tsp dried flakes

2 tbsp water

Salt & pepper to taste

 

  1. Combine the chilli powder, pepper, cumin, salt and pepper in a small bowl with 1 tbsp olive oil. Place salmon in bowl and rub into skin covering all of the salmon.
  2. Heat a pan on medium heat with 1 tbsp oil. Place fillets into pan skin side down first and cook for 4 minutes, just leave to cook. Then flip fillets over and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, remove.                                                                                                                                                        20170721_192643
  3. Meanwhile make the dressing by mixing together all the dressing ingredients in a blender until you have a smooth paste.
  4. If you have a spiralizer then use that for your cucumber, if not, you can use a peeler to make strips.                                                                                                                                                                      20170721_194003
  5. Add the cucumber to the avocado dressing and coat.  20170721_194007
  6. Place the cucumber onto a plate and place the salmon on top. Serve. Yummy!

Mid week Spicy Superfood Seafood Stir Fry

 

20160412_183742_resized

I picked up some amazing Kalettes from my local Food assembly in Glasgow this week, they were kindly supplied by Donald from Rhone Cottage, (http://www.rhonecottage.co.uk/) they grow their own seasonal produce using only sustainable practises and no artificial fertilisers are used.

I decided to try and stir fry them with some seafood, and the flavour was amazing. Kalettes are a bit like a brussel sprout and Kale in one, also classed as a superfood. Below are the Kalettes.

My Deliciously Delightful Lemon & Juniper Berry Salmon

From my previous post as you know I visited the Good Food Show in Glasgow last week and picked up this fab Bread Dipping oil. Well, I planned on having Salmon tonight for dinner and thought….Lemon and Salmon go, why not try marinading the salmon with this oil.

DSC_0018                    20151110_175824_resized

And here are my results………..absolutely delicious, much better than a squeeze of lemon. Just marinade for 1 hour then I steamed cooked in my Combi Microwave and it was truly deliciously delightful!!

Avocado Salsa Salmon

IMG_20151012_202302_resized

This week we celebrate Scottish Seafood Week, an eight day celebration that aims to encourage people across the UK to eat more fish, more often – and the quality and quantity of seafood that comes from the rich, clear waters around Scotland is certainly something to celebrate.

From fine-dining favourites like oysters and langoustines to beautiful fish-and-chip-shop classics like cod and haddock, Scottish seafood offers something for every taste and budget. Not to mention that the current holders of two major national competitions, run by Seafish, are from Scotland. Glasgow-based Gamba are the proud holders of the Seafood Restaurant of the Year, while Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year was handed to Frankie’s in Shetland earlier this year.

My Avocado Salsa Scottish Salmon

Serves 2

2 pieces of lovely Scottish Salmon

1/2 Avocado

1 tbsp Coriander

Juice from 1 lime

1 tsp olive oil

1/2 red onion – chopped finely

1 tsp Chilli powder

1 tsp smoked Paprika

Salt & Pepper

1/2 tsp Cumin

In a bowl, mix all the spices:- chilli, paprika, cumin, salt &  pepper, then rub onto one side of the salmon, chill for 30 mins in fridge.

Meanwhile, chopped avocado into small chunks/slices, add to a bowl, mix in the red onion, lime juice, coriander and 1tsp of olive oil. Set aside.

Steam cook your salmon first then place on a griddle at high heat for a minute to seal in the spices. Alternatively, you can cook under the high grill for approx 6-7 mins until cooked through.

Place the salsa mixture on top of Salmon and serve. Yummy! The good thing with this is you can tailor to your own taste, more spicy…add more chilli….less…..add less, it’s up to you. Enjoy!
