Smoked Salmon and Avocado Bites

Smoked Salmon and Avocado Bites

Smoked salmon, avocado and cucumber bites are the perfect snack recipe. They’re healthy, tasty, uber easy to make, and look beautiful on a serving tray. Your guests (or your afternoon tea break) will love them!  This recipe has been made with a Reed avocado, the creamiest delectable avocado of them all. With only 5 ingredients the nutty flavour stands out as it should. Reed avocados are only available for a limited time and have a lighter, more subtle flavour and are about the size of a softball. Be warned, as the Reed ripens, its skin remains the same green color, unlike other types of avocado, so don’t leave them for too long without checking them!

This recipe provides a nice contribution of protein (17g) and a brilliant contribution to your B Vitamins (110% of your B12 needs). This recipe also caters to ½ your daily needs of selenium needs. Selenium is only needed in small amounts but plays a major role in important processes in your body. Selenium acts as a powerful antioxidant and is important for the proper functioning of your thyroid gland. In fact, thyroid tissue contains a higher amount of selenium than any other organ in the human body! Selenium protects the thyroid gland from oxidative stress and is necessary for thyroid hormone production.

Note: For the non-salmon eaters - replace with hemp hearts instead!
