My G.P and Endocrinologist have both told me that due to my Diabetes I need to eat at least 6 times a day —- breakfast, lunch, dinner and three snacks.
While I recognize the wisdom in their words that is going to be a bit of a hard task for me since I have mainly been subsisting on perhaps two meals a day for the last 40 years and frankly in the last 8 years that number, due to working in kitchens, had dropped to once so the idea of eating three times a day let alone having snacks is completely foreign to me but I am willing to give it the old college try.
This particular snack, then, is the result of heeding both of my doctors advice and coming up with something tasty and fast and trust me this kind of a plate is not disappointing.
Here’s how we do this one:
- 1 tin Sockeye salmon
- Black bean crackers
- Slices of skin on Cucumber
- Radishes – halved
- 1/2 small Celery rib – diced
- 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon granulated Garlic
- 1 small Shallot – diced
- 2 tablespoons Lite Mayo
- Pinch of salt and pepper
Putting it all together:
- Pick the bones from the salmon and place in a non reactive bowl.
- Mix in the shallots, celery and dry spices.
- Add the mayo and mix until well incorporated.
- Pack the salmon in a small bowl and then turn upside down onto a plate.
- Arrange the crackers, cucumber and radishes around the salmon.
There you have it another “simple but tasty recipe for the grilling season and beyond.”
Until next time……..
