Sometimes a combination of two opposite flavours give amazing results. The combination of salty with sweet might not appeal to many but if you do like it then i think you should give this recipe a try. I made this during christmas as a starter and my family simply loved it. It was quick, original and virtually with no added oil!
I was given some smoked salmon and wanted to make something different. I was toying with the idea of combining it with avocado but i could not conjure up a way to do it in my mind and did not want to spend too much time in the kitchen. I had a can of lychees in my pantry and thought why not combine it with the sweet juiciness of a lychee?
It just took me under five minutes to make up this lovely starter!
Smoked salmon cut into strips
1 can of lychees, drained of their syrup
Oregano and dried parsley
Rinse the drained lychees under running water to remove their extra sweetness and drain well. Meanwhile mix the smoked salmon strips with the oregano and parsley. Carefully stuff each lychee with a little salmon and place on a plate. You can even drizzle some olive oil ontop if you want and decorate it with either lettuce. My family loves pineapple so i served it with some.
