    Salmon-filled Avocados : Low Carb High Fat Deliciousness


    You could call this good Maths! It's easy and delicious! Avocado + smoked salmon = no cooking.
    This creamy dish is a luxurious breakfast, quick lunch or light dinner. You may also choose to serve it as a colourful appetizer at your next dinner party. So easy... so delicious...

    Ingredients:
    Serves Two
    7g carbs per serving
    2 avocados
    6 oz. smoked salmon
    ¾ cup crème fraiche or mayonnaise
    salt and pepper 2 tablespoons lemon juice (optional)

    This delicious plate may also be served with any other type of fatty fish - boiled, fried or smoked, and it tastes even better with a little fresh dill!

    Ooh thanks for the reminder!

    I forgot the avocado I had with a recent king prawn stir fry, which was close to perfection.

    I have another one which I will have later along with a piece of Chilli Salmon, already baked but best warmed up a bit.
