Spring Summer Brunch recipe – Smoked Salmon Tortilla
I haven’t written many recipes, but I do like to make my own variations/concoctions with the least hassle.
This recipe is a go to, breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!
I haven’t looked at direct nutrition for this. This recipe I enjoy and is simple. I think that sometimes calorie counting and nutrition can go a step too far. This recipe has healthy fats and protein (salmon, avocado and yoghurt – I use Greek Yoghurt). Micronutrients and macronutrients included. Maybe not a huge number of veggies, but you could add any leafy green that you wanted. Carbohydrates in the tortilla wrap. A nutritious meal that you could add your own twist, however you like the taste.
A recipe my sister and her husband whipped up for a quick easy dinner when my tiny human was 3 months old and we were staying at a friends house for the weekend. They found the recipe in a book from the library and they can’t remember who the recipe was by for me to look up/credit the genius. But I think it’s sad not to share as it’s so basic, nutritious and lovely any time of day.
- Smoked salmon
- Yoghurt/Creme fraiche/mayonnaise (you choose)
- Harissa/chipotle paste
- Flour tortilla (homemade recipe is possible too).
Pan 1 – Flour tortilla. Warm in a frying pan with a dry pan or with vegetable oil (not sunflower or olive oil).
Pan 2 – Slice shallots finely and fry until crispy and brown. Once browned, lay on paper towel to soak up excess oil. You can buy already crispy onions these days – you could do that.
Bowl 1 – Mix yoghurt and harissa/chipotle to your taste liking.
Chopping Board – Chop avocado and coriander.
Final Plate –
Tortilla on the plate, smear harissa yoghurt on the tortilla. Load smoked salmon (to liking portion). Load avocado, shallots and coriander. Pepper to taste and a squeeze of lime on top.
