Some foods are meant to be together! One of our favorite pairs is salmon and avocado. Whether it's raw, smoked, or cooked salmon, avocado is always a great addition to the dish.
Here’s a recipe for our super easy Salmon Avocado Layer:
1 lb sushi-grade salmon
3 small shallots
small bunch of chives
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
toasts, crackers, or chips
Chop salmon into 1/3" cubes. Finely chop shallots. Chop chives.
Mix all the ingredients and add 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp olive oil, and pepper to taste. Mix well and set aside.
Cut the avocado into small cubes. Sprinkle lemon juice to prevent color change.
Using a round gateaux mould, layer the salmon on top of the avocado.
Serve it with some toasts, crackers, or chips.
Salmon is a good source of healthy fats called omega-3.
Studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may have various health benefits like improved cardiovascular health, lower risk of cancer, and better cognitive function.
Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend eating about 8 ounces per week of a variety of seafood, including fish and shellfish.
