Pesto Zoodles with Shrimps is made with an avocado, cilantro and sunflower seeds unctuous pesto topped with lightly spiced garlic-paprika shrimps. A great way to cut on carbs without loosing on taste! Zoodles, zoodles, zoodles… Quite a “hit” from last summer, not yet out of the spectrum of trends… so let’s make good use of it! I’m looking for ways to cut on carbs these days and zoodles are a great way to imitate a plate of pasta without all the empty calories! If you don’t have a special instrument to make zoodles, no worry! Simply use the cheese grater! I’ve made the zoodles ultra creamy with the help of an avocado based pesto and gave it a fresh touch of cilantro. If you are one of those “soap” tasting person, simply substitute it by some basil. Plus, since the carbs are low, the avocado will help make the dish satisfying…

Tuna, Avocado Tartare is an elegant, fresh and colourful tartare made of lightly spiced tuna, cilantro-lime marinated avocado and juicy watermelon for a fresh bite! It’s hot, I don’t know for you but here in Spain, it’s just terribly hot outside this summer. No way I’m going to cook anything on the stove for a while… I need freshness, I need light, I need easy-breezy, so no better recipe for hot summer nights than a this tuna, avocado tartare, right? Better safe than sorry Tartare, whether it’s beef, salmon or tuna, are so easy to make and frankly super delicious BUT being made with raw meat/fish you need to extra careful with its manipulation and the quality of the product. Here are my tartare’s golden rules: Ask your favorite Fishmonger if he does have a sashimi grade fish, they usually cost a tad more but well worth it! Come prepared…

An unctuous orange sauce made out of papaya and white wine mustard covers the shrimps. Accompanied by a crunchy yellow bell pepper and cilantro leaves for an asian/tropical influence. A lovely recipe with lots of character! This flavor is a combination of sweet and sour with a touch of spice, it has an asian/tropical side to it, or more precisely it’s a kind of curry with extra mustard flavor. Fresh, light and easy to prepare, another beloved “done under 30 minutes” meal. I’ve used a wok for this recipe although a pan would do as well. A nice crunchy yellow bell pepper and cilantro leaves are going to accompany to perfection this meal. The peppers aren’t cooked here, to keep the meal extra fresh and crunchy, although if you prefer… add them to the shrimps to warm them up a bit. The highlight of the dish lie in the sweet and sour…

Cilantro lime Couscous salad is a sunny, fresh side dish made with zucchini, tomatoes, onions, cilantro leaves and garlic drizzled with a lovely lime and olive oil dressing. Served cold, this Cilantro lime Couscous salad is a great summer side dish. A great side kicks to any seafood, quiche or even on it’s own, a light main dish lunch. Plus, it’s a “done under 15 minutes” recipe and taste fantastic, although the longest you let it in the fridge… the better the flavors will become. Usually, I do my couscous last second, but I make too much in order to get some tasty leftovers for lunch the next day. This is one of those meal that gets better over time. Tabbouleh little cousin Similar to tabbouleh, the usual one is filled with parsley, which is great, but here, I’ve exchanged the parsley for cilantro, which is, I believe, fresher and…

Dirty Cilantro Mojito is a great alternative to the traditional one, this mojito is just as refreshing and tasty as the original. Often in recipes you’ll see mint to be substitute by cilantro or vice versa… Well, I add a bunch of cilantro leaves to use… so guess what I had to try?… a Cilantro Mojito, of course! A great discovery, and delicious one too. It gives the famous drink a second life, a great new dimension to mojito. I’m still a great mint mojito lover but this is equally good, and if you are like me, and like a little change once in awhile, this is the way. Both mint and cilantro are filled with health benefits, minerals and vitamins of all kinds, so no winner on this side. The famous mojito cocktail was created in La Havana, Cuba. I’ve, for my part, discovered mojitos, while backpacking though central America, a few years ago, back…
