|Avocado Gravlax Cake|
Avocado Gravlax Cake:
(recipe for one appetizer)
1 medium size avocado
Juice of 1 freshly squeezed lime
salt and pepper
1 medium size tomato/blanched in hot water for 10-12 seconds and cooled immediately to stop from cooking. Peel the skin/remove the seeds and diced
1/4 cup of diced gravlax (google for gravlax recipe)
1/4 cup of diced seeded and peeled tomato
For the avocado:
Peel and scoop meat into the food processor with the lime juice and salt and pepper.
Pulse until blended with just enough bits of the avocado meat
Place a cookie cutter on a serving plate (use the cookie cutter as a mold)
Scoop 1/2 of the avocado meat inside the cookie cutter
Make some kind of well in the middle of the avocado and scoop in the diced gravlax
Completely cover the gravlax with the rest of the avocado, smoothing it as you go along.
Top with diced tomato and slowly lift the cookie cutter mold. *See TIPS below.
Garnish with thin slices of gravlax and some dill.
Tips: brush a little olive oil around the inside of the cookie mold for easy removal- and refrigerate for 5-10 minutes before lifting the mold.
