Gravlax on a Spinach Salad

Gravlax on a spinach salad is such a good mix! The crunchy texture of the spinach goes perfectly with the tender salmon and the sweet mustard dressing. If you do a Gravlax and you have leftovers and would like to eat it a different way maybe, try this salad. This salmon is made with a simple… Continue reading Gravlax on a Spinach Salad

Gravlax

The famous northern appetizer is as simple as it is delicious! Just need to plan ahead, because it takes a minimum of 24 hours to marinate. I usually do it in 48 hours, changing the side of the fish midway. The best part for it would be the less fatty part of the salmon, but in… Continue reading Gravlax

Spring salad with goat cheese

No salad is ever the same – just switching up a type of lettuce adds a… Continue reading Spring salad with goat cheese

Oven backed Falafel

This is an healthy oven baked falafel recipe. Lately, I’ve been trying to eat more vegetarian due to all those recent studies that have come out about how bad meat is for you and the environment. But sadly… the truth is… I could not live without meat, so instead I simply compromise. I try to eat meat… Continue reading Oven backed Falafel
