When it comes to snack food most people think of potato chips, popcorn and that kind of thing and I admit that I do the same thing however I wanted something different and healthy this time so in searching the pantry I found some Avocados and decided they would be perfect in a snack and they were.

Here’s how we do this one.

Shopping list:

  • 2 Ripe Avocados – pitted and removed from the skin
  • 3 Garlic cloves – finely diced
  • 2 small Shallots – diced
  • 4 Cherry Tomatoes – sliced
  • 2 ounces of Capers
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Small Baguette – sliced on the bias

Putting it all together:

  1. In a medium non reactive bowl mash the Avocado with a fork until just slightly chunky.
  2. Mix in the garlic and shallots and season with the salt and pepper. Cover and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  3. Toast the baguette slices and lightly brush them with the Canola oil, spread on the Avocado and top with the tomatoes and capers.
  4. Enjoy.

There you have it another “Simple but tasty recipe for the grilling season and beyond.”

Until next time……

Salmon En Papillot

Salmon En Papillot

Fish and Chip night around here just got a whole lot more interesting. I still make the “normal” type for my grandson however for the elder crowd I decided to do Salmon En Papillot because it is simple to make and very simple to clean up. The one major issue with this technique is you cannot see the fish so it is tough to know when it’s done which is why I have labeled the difficulty level on this as medium.

Here’s how we do this one.

Shopping list:

  • 4 Salmon filets – about 5 ounces each
  • 2 cups Yellow Onions – sliced
  • 2 cups Red Pepper – sliced
  • 2 cups Carrot – julienned
  • 4 teaspoons Capers
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 4  tablespoons Dill
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 4 Sheets Parchment paper

Putting it all together:

  1. Pre heat the oven to 400°
  2. Place the vegetables in the middle of the Parchment paper and season with salt and pepper then place the Salmon on top of the vegetables.
  3. Melt the butter and dill and then brush over the salmon. Top with the capers and seal the parchment paper by rolling the top down and tucking the ends underneath.
  4. Place in the oven on the middle rack for 15 minutes.
  5. To serve simple place the pouch on a plate and cut open the top.
  6. Enjoy.
