I have made this salad more times than I can count and yet have never really shared the recipe until today. Actually I’m on my Instagram account right now and just realized I said I’d post this, 3 years ago. Never believe when I promise to post a recipe soon, it’s almost certainly a lie.

Pico de Gallo Stuffed Avocados
“You can’t make everyone happy, you’re not an avocado.” is a quote I saw scrolling through my Instagram feed today. And I couldn’t agree more. Not only with the fact that mostly every single human being I’ve met likes avocado, because, well. Continue reading “Pico de Gallo Stuffed Avocados”
Celeriac Soup with Toasted Hazelnuts, Brussels & Smoked Bacon
Celery root has to be one of nature’s ugliest vegetable; it’s wrinkly, hairy and dirty, which also makes it kind of painful Continue reading “Celeriac Soup with Toasted Hazelnuts, Brussels & Smoked Bacon”
Tuna Tartare with Avocado Gazpacho
Well guys, it doesn’t get much better than this dish for only 15 minutes spent in the kitchen and barely any clean up to do.
Spicy Tuna Veggie Rolls
It’s hot outside, and I like my fish raw. I loooooooove sushi and could probably eat it every day and not get tired of it but man it’s a pain in the a** to make. The thing when you make sushi is (or at least when I make sushi) that you never just make one kind. If that were Continue reading “Spicy Tuna Veggie Rolls”
When I make a salsa, it often involves fruit. My go-to’s are usually mango, pineapple and papaya. All of them being acidic fruits, they blend really well with the other ingredients such as cilantro, lime and jalapeños. Only problem is they are also tropical fruits which doesn’t make them a very eco-friendly option. Don’t get me wrong I don’t always use local products and I am as guilty as anyone of buying imported produce. Continue reading “Peach Salsa”
Grilled Cajun Prawns with Jalapeño Cilantro Sauce
Summer is coming to an end (sigh)! I realize that for a lot of people it’s summertime all year long, but for us folks in the Northern hemisphere, it’s a very short season that always seems Continue reading “Grilled Cajun Prawns with Jalapeño Cilantro Sauce”
Cucumber Avocado Gazpacho
These days there’s a ton of tomatoes, fresh herbs and chili peppers growing in the garden. And since I have been trying really hard to buy and cook with fresh local produce I have been using tomatoes in a lot of recipes lately.
Tartare has always been one of favourite dishes. Salmon Tartare, Tuna Tartare, Steak Tartare, I love them all.
A few years ago I was visiting my family in Montreal, and my family and I went Continue reading “Salmon Tartare”
Paleo Bacon & Crab Mushrooms Caps
This whole stuffed mushroom idea started with me being at this beautiful fish store out of town and buying crabmeat, because it looked delicious but also because I can’t get it where I live. I already had a plan for dinner so I had to find a way to incorporate it into a side dish or an appetizer. Continue reading “Paleo Bacon & Crab Mushrooms Caps”
