I have for you today two items that I was never fond of. After a looong gap, I gave them one more opportunity to please me, and what do you know, seems like I quite enjoy them. Shocked at this, and pleasantly surprised at how much my tastes have changed, I am embracing this new found love for Avocado's and Salmon...yes, two completely different food genres...with all my heart.
Fish has never been my favourite, and I can very strongly say, it never will be too. But of late, I have started experimenting with it at home (much to Ro's delight) and I can proudly say I eat a few varieties of it, if made the way I like with absolutely no taste of fish coming through (much to Ro's despair). So when I was asked to review a Saucy Fish Co product, I was a bit apprehensive as to how it would be, considering that they all came with their respective sauces and I didn't need to do any jazzing up of my own.
The salmon and sauce makes for a full meal if you have a salad or some roast potatoes or so on the side. We had it with this simple avocado salad, which again was a true eye opener. Thanks to my sis-in-law for passing on this easy peacy recipe, we now like avocado. Even my fussy brother who hates anything green, loved this. So you have to trust me on how good it tasted. I
Avocados- 2 large, flesh cooped out
Small onions- 2 to 3, finely chopped
Green chilli- 1, finely chopped
Ginger- 1/2 inch, peeled and finely chopped
Coriander leaves- 1 tbsp, finely chopped
Sugar- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp
Salt- to taste
Lime juice- a generous dash/ squeeze
Coconut oil- 1 tsp
Tip in the onions, chilli, ginger and coriander leaves into the bowl and mix well with the avocados.
Add the salt, sugar and lime juice and give it a toss. Do a taste check to see if its all good.
Finally, drizzle the coconut oil over the salad, give a final mix and serve with a garnish of some coriander leaves.
You can add any oil of choice, but coconut oil gives it that distinct taste. Ro said he would prefer olive oil, but I loved it this way.
With thanks to The Saucy Fish Co. for the vouchers to pick up the product from the store.
