Mango, Avocado and Prawn Salad with Coriander, Chili and Lime

Avocado and Prawn Salad with Cilantro, Chili and Lime

Light and highly flavored, consider this salad a guilt-free indulgence! This south-of-the-border inspired salad is absolutely terrific. It really brings me back to holidays spent in Mexico soaking up the sun and enjoying fresh ceviche served in beach cafes. With the combination of prawns, lime and cilantro this salad is fresh, vibrant and reminiscent of […]

Papaya Salad with Avocado and Sweet Red Onion

The combination of papaya, avocado, sweet red onion and cilantro is a perfect match. It’s what I call a summer papaya salad of the highest calling. It’s a fantastic salad to serve as a main with grilled jumbo tiger prawns or as a sumptuous side. Not only does it taste great; it’s also pretty. Choose […]

Salmon and Asparagus Ceviche

White Asparagus and Salmon Ceviche

Simplicity itself. Thin slices of raw, ultra-fresh salmon and white asparagus are marinated in a mixture of sweet red onion, lime juice, and chili before being served with avocado and fresh cilantro. Ceviche makes a fabulous starter or light dinner – perfect for a sunny spring or summer evening. Ceviche is seafood dish popular in […]

Coconut-Infused Ceviche

Coconut-Infused Ceviche

In Peru, they say a great ceviche doesn’t need more than five ingredients; fish, lime juice, chili pepper, onion and salt. I like to add a little vibrancy to mine with the addition of tomatoes, avocado and coriander, plus a little coconut milk – if you can manage to get your hands on fresh coconut […]

Tender Green Salad in a Champagne Vinaigrette with Asparagus and Strawberries

Tender Greens in a Champagne Vinaigrette with Asparagus, Strawberries & Avocado

Champagne vinegar is considered the “king of vinegars” in France as it is incomparably smooth, subtle, and light. It makes a great choice for dressing up delicately flavored salads using ingredients that are fresh, ripe and in season. In the early spring, blanched asparagus and spring strawberries make a perfect match. A buttery avocado also […]

Papaya Avocado Salad in a Sweet Papaya Seed Dressing

Fruit is a great addition to any salad. Try pairing creamy, buttery papaya and avocado with crisp red pepper and romaine lettuce. Together with a fresh tarragon and papaya seed dressing, heavenly. Choose a firm, ripe avocado so you can enjoy the best of its smooth texture and a nutty taste. Don’t toss the papaya […]

Avocado 3-Ways

Avocados. Rather supercados, are just the best thing ever! Not only is this tasty green fruit (yes fruit….a berry to be exact) super versatile, it’s also fabulously healthy and a great anti-aging tool for your skin. With all its nutrients, healthy fat and vitamins it feeds your skin from the inside and out. Avocados contain […]

Papaya Avocado Salad in a Lime-Mint Dressing

Now that my favorite Schwabe has come to the realization that papayas are powerfully healthy, he’s been on a bit of a papaya fix. At the market last week we bought a whoppingly huge one for 13€. Bigger than an eggplant but smaller than your average watermelon, that thing was huge! So what ensued was […]

Fresh Salmon Tartare

The fabulous thing about salmon tartare is there’s no cooking involved, just a little bit of chopping and adding some ingredients for a light and healthy dish. This is an excellent meal when it’s hot outside and you don’t feel like cooking and want something more than just a summer salad. Be sure to ask […]

Avocado, Prawn and Smoked Salmon Tartare

I love salmon tartare in any form, especially this variation. It’s particularly delightful enjoyed on a shady terrace with a crisp rosé wine on a summer night. This is one was prepared by my friend Denise. It has enough going on to keep anyone interested. This version has a base of buttery avocado, smoked salmon […]
