SALMON & AVOCADO ON CRANBERRY & PECAN TOAST

I believe that selfcare is more than just beauty, rest and exercise – I feel treating yourself to a lovely lunch can really boost your mood and give you that ‘holiday feel’ when maybe all you are is having a quiet day at home in your own garden enjoying the sunshine.

I had this for lunch myself last weekend and I loved it. I made it all up…  with the fresh bread I purchased that morning plus what was already in my fridge. I have no idea what the calorie count is but it does contain NUTS so please ensure you don’t give this to anyone with a nut allergy.

This is for one person, double up if you are inviting someone to join you.

RECIPE FOR SALMON & AVOCADO ON CRANBERRY & PECAN TOAST

INGREDIENTS

Cranberry and Pecan Nut bread (I bought this fresh from M&S Food) – You can use any bread that you love, but I recommend that it’s suitable for toasting.

One pre-cooked fillet of Salmon – the hot chilli version (you can use the honey or plain version, if that’s your preference)

About 5 or 6 halved Baby plum tomatoes – I prefer these to cherry as they are slightly sweeter to taste

A couple of leaves of baby gem lettuce

½ an avocado

Chilli oil (or olive oil)

Salt & black pepper

 

METHOD

 

  1. Prep everything BEFORE you toast the bread or it will go cold
  2. Halve the baby plum tomatoes
  3. Cut the lettuce leaves into thin strips
  4. Scoop out the avocado of the ½ you are using and cut into 1cm cubes
  5. Remove the skin from the salmon (I’m not keen on this) and break the salmon meat into chunky pieces
  6. Now toast two slices of the bread (if you bought the same as me you will need to slice it first – my slices are approx 2cm thick – you want to be able to taste the bread!)
  7. Place the toasted bread on your plate, and scatter over the lettuce
  8. Then add the chunks of salmon
  9. Scatter over the tomatoes, followed by the avocado
  10. Now drizzle over the oil you have selected – a small amount so that the toasted bread has something to soak up or it will be very dry
  11. Finish by adding Salt and Black Pepper

 

Enjoy with a glass of your favourite lunchtime drink & a good book to read.

 

Happy well-being!
