Salmon burger with wasabi, avocado and spinach leaves.
My healthy favourite recipe! Salmon wrapped in sesame seeds with wasabi and avocado.
You would not readily think of putting these ingredients together, but the combination of smells, colours, textures and tastes is a treat for 4 of the 5 senses – and it is healthy too!
Serves 4 people
– two sheets frozen puff pastry
– 1 egg
– 4 salmon fillets
– 1 lime
– 2 teaspoons poppy seeds/ or sesame seeds
– 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
– 3 avocados
– 1/4 teaspoon wasabi (or more or less to taste)
– 1 bag baby spinach leaves
Slice each puff pastry sheet in half
Place on a baking tray on greaseproof paper
Brush the tops with egg
Bake it in the oven according to instructions
Mash avocado and season with salt and pepper and
wasabi to taste
Spice salmon with lemon pepper and quickly fry on a
hot pan until golden and crisp outside and still pink
and soft in the middle.
Squeeze the lime juice over the salmon fillets and
roll them in a bowl of poppy seeds
Cut each puff pastry in half horizontally
Add the bottom half to a plate, and cover with a
layer of spinach, then the salmon, and then avocado.
Add top of the puff pastry. serve hot.
A chilled dry white wine such as a Chablis is excellent with this.
Listening to some cool music as you eat will be
the treat for your 5th sense
