Smoked Salmon and Avocado Spread
I had something very similar to this during my last trip to aust. It was not taken at any cafe but just something that i grabbed from a 7 eleven outlet and i used that to spread on my breads, potatoes and as a dip for some carrots. It was nice and trying to see what's in there, the label says it has smoked salmon, avocado, cream cheese, chives and a few more that i have already forgotten what they were by the time i wanted to make these at home. So i shall seek help from google again. I see some that add tomatoes relish, that sounds delicious but a little extra work for me, i want something simpler and browsing here and there, i came up with this version of a simple smoked salmon and avocado spread. The one that i had there looks more orangey in colour and a little more creamier, you can add in more cream cheese if you want. It's simple to prepare, put all the ingredients in a food processor, blitz them and they are ready in couple of minutes.
Recipe ( makes one cup)
100gms of smoked salmon, i got 2 slices here
1/4 piece of ripe avocado, peeled
110gm of cream cheese, at room temperature
1 small onion, chopped
1tsp lemon juice
some black pepper ( optional)
Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and process them till they are well mixed. Remove and add in the chives or spring onions and a dash of black pepper if needed.
