SWEET AND SPICY AVOCADO TOAST
Yield: 1 slice (can be doubled)
1 slice multigrain pullman bread
¼ ripe avocado
1 to 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
Pink Himalayan salt
1 to 2 tsp. olive oil
½ small tomato, diced
1 large egg, lightly fried and/or 1 to 2 oz. smoked wild salmon, optional
1 4- to 6-oz. Organic Scottish Salmon
Everything Bagel Topping
Black Pepper Simple Syrup
Preheat broiler to high; line a baking sheet with foil and oil foil. Place an oven rack about 4 inches from heat source. Lightly brush salmon filet all over with olive oil. If there is skin on the fish, place it skin side down on the sheet. Generously spoon Everything Bagel Topping over salmon, sprinkle with lemon juice and lightly season with salt. Broil fish until desired doneness, about 6 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness of fish and how well done you like it. (Use a fork to open up the thickest part to check.)
AVO DEVILED EGGS
Yield: 4 egg halves
2 large eggs
¼ ripe avocado, chopped
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
Salt (preferably Himalayan pink salt)
- To hard-boil eggs, place them in a saucepan with a lid. Cover with cold water. Turn stove on to high and bring to a rolling boil. Turn off heat, cover pan and let stand for 9 minutes.
- Drain eggs and run under cold water. Peel eggs, cut in half and remove yolks. (Save yolks for another use.)
- In a small bowl, combine avocado, crushed red pepper flakes and lemon juice; mash with a fork until well combined. Taste and season with salt (add additional red pepper flakes, if desired). Spoon avocado mixture into egg white halves, filling the space where the yolk was.
