- Smoked salmon
- Pumpkin seeds
- Honey and mustard vinaigrette
Flavours and textures that help you fight boredom at the same time as you look after yourself. With this in mind, we invite you to try a salad featuring smoked salmon, the sweetness of mango and the hearty chickpea. A recipe with many nuances, where the combination of flavours and textures is key.
The Fisch Salad has strips of smoked salmon, a chickpea base, diced mango, pumpkin seeds and mesclun. The smoked salmon brings the dish a strong flavour, making an original contrast with the mango’s sweetness. As a dressing, we add a spoonful of chickpea hummus, which is a cream of chickpea purée cooked with lemon juice, and includes tahini paste, garlic and olive oil. The final touch is given by our classic honey and mustard vinaigrette, which is home-made and prepared with mustard, thousand-flowers honey and red-wine vinegar, combining perfectly with the dish’s main ingredient, the salmon.
A bite of something more WOW
The blend of the hummus with the honey and mustard vinaigrette provides a double smoothness, allowing all the ingredients to bind together and better complement each other. This is no traditional condiment, but rather a mixture that adds flavour and an extra nutritional component to the recipe.
The diversity of textures brought by the ingredients to this salad is really interesting, with the contrasts of firmness making it an original dish which is fun to eat. And as the chickpea is a fairly consistent legume and the salmon rich in proteins, this salad constitutes a very complete and tasty recipe. It’s perfect as a single course for lunch, when we have to eat out and want a nutritious, energising dish.
Remember to mix everything well so that it’s all evenly dressed and distributed!
Did you know that chickpeas are some of the oldest legumes? They originated in Turkey and have been grown and eaten on the Iberian Peninsula since the Carthaginians brought them here. There are up to forty different species.
Chickpeas grow all year round. They are an excellent source of vegetable protein, favour intestinal transit, are rich in fibre and low in fats. What’s more, according to the scientific community their regular consumption reduces cholesterol and triglycerides and promotes cardiovascular health. What more can we ask?
