Panko Avocado with Homemade Honey Mustard

Avocado is one of my favourite ingredients. Not only is it soft and creamy, but it also has an incredible flavour that lets itself be combined with others. In this case, I breaded them with panko (a super crunchy japanese breadcrumb) and cooked them in the oven. You can also fry them ;). As a dip I made a homemade honey mustard (takes literally 2min) and you can use it not only as a dip but also as a dressing, for sandwiches and wraps.

Chunky nacho salsa

Difficulty 1/5

To eat nachos, it’s a must to have a yummy sauce, and I love the tomato type. I like it chunky, with important pieces of each ingredient to really get their whole flavour. The trick to get max flavour out of it is to leave the mix overnight in the fridge after you have cooked it so the flavours really develop, achieving an A.MA.ZING result.  Continue reading Chunky nacho salsa

Tasty baked chicken wings

Difficulty 3/5

I love chicken wings. Grilled, pan-fried, oven baked. What’s yummy about them is that you can eat them with your hands yet it’s still be socially acceptable. They always hace a nice sauce with them and this time it’s no exception. I marinated them in several spices that make them so yummy. That part is really easy. It gets complicated if you want to make your wings one-biters by just one pull of the teeth like I did; there’s some butchery to be made. However, if this is too complicated for you, you can always just cook them whole, and they’ll be as yummy. With what was left of the wings I made chicken stock 🙂 I’ll leave the recipe also.

Roasted tomato and ricotta bruschetta

Difficulty 1/5

Even I was impressed when I bit into these amazing, juicy cherry tomato bruschetta. The cherry tomatoes are roasted in the oven with olive oil, garlic and thyme (which are then removed), so that by the time they come out they’re impregnated with their aroma. The ricotta cheese helps with creaminess, and the lime zest and basil leaf with freshness. Really an absolutely pleasant bite. Continue reading Roasted tomato and ricotta bruschetta

Passion fruit and physalis ceviche

Difficulty 2/5

This really is not officially ceviche, but “tiradito”. The difference is in the way the fish is cut. If it’s in cubes, it’s a ceviche, and if it’s laminated it’s a tiradito. So now you know :). I really like this recipe because it’s very fresh, it has an amazing level of acidity and I just love how the physalis complements the passion fruit. Also those basil leaves give a really nice touch to a bite. The only difficult part really is to laminate the fish. You will need a really sharp knife and slow, continuous movements to achieve a perfect cut 🙂 And if you think you can’t handle it, you can always dice up the fish and actually make ceviche. Continue reading Passion fruit and physalis ceviche

Asian flavours salmon tartare

Difficulty 1/5

This is definitely one of this dishes that you would order in a restaurant and say to yourself “I would never be able to do this”, but actually it’s extremely easy to do. I love the sauce for this one, it’s tasty to an extreme and makes the softness of the salmon come through. The avocado, as it’s fatty like the salmon, makes the mouthful very pleasurable, and the slightly sour sauce with the spring onions and shallots makes it a perfect dish :). It’s very fresh and should be serves really cold with some nice toasts. Continue reading Asian flavours salmon tartare
