What Would You Make?

Here's the scenario: you are at home and hungry for food. You have to cook up something scrumptious for you and your boyfriend/girlfriend/ spouse/child/friend, but the ingredients you have on hand are limited.

You have a couple of fresh salmon fillets, avocado, and soy sauce. Using these products, along with whatever you currently have on hand in your cupboard and refrigerator, what would you make?

To see what I would make,


  1. I would start by making some white rice.
  2. While the rice cooks, I would slice the salmon super thin, sashimi style.
  3. I would then clump the rice into small mounds and top with a wedge of avocado and a slice of salmon.
  4. Finally, I would serve my make shift sushi with soy sauce for dipping.

Salmon and avocado are best left simple. I'd lightly salt and pepper the salmon. I'd slice the avocado and zest w/ lemon juice. I'd serve a rice with light soy sauce on the side. Serve them separately, they'd be beautiful on a plate in the right spot. Don't gussy fresh ingredients.
yayITZdre yayITZdre 9 years mouth is totally watering! i think i would skip the avocado and put it in a sandwich or salad and eat the salmon with the soy sauce by itself. the salmon and soy sauce is good enough for me! but...there is always sushi

Combine the soy sauce with some fresh garlic and a little cilantro. Cut a small pocket into the salmon and let it marinate for about 10 minutes. Take the avocado and make a salsa with mango, cilantro, onion, jalapeno and tomato. I would broil the salmon fillets then top with the salsa and serve with a green salad in a light creamy jalapeno ranch dressing.

I'd probably grab some rice and boil the rice, and cut the salmon in small cubes, and then get some seaweed, and roll them up, and make sushi from there. I usually also have some wasabi on hand, so yay! If I had cream cheese, I might make my own makeshift Philadelphia roll style, or a mixture of Philadelphia/California style rolls.

I would make some brown or white rice and broil the salmon. Then I would flake the salmon, toss it with the rice, season with the soy sauce and add chunks of avocado for a sushi-ish rice bowl.

I'd make a marinade by watering down the soy sauce a bit and add garlic, ginger and onion. I'd marinate the salmon, then bake it and serve it with a rice salad with julienned veggies and avocado cubes.

Salmon Tacos 2 tbs butter lemon juice, lemon pepper, or apple vinegar, whatever you have salt+pepper 4tbs tbs soy sauce red pepper flakes or chili powder garlic brown sugar shredded lettuce or cabbage can of tropical fruit mix black beans small flour tortillas avocado (by the way, I am winging it) Melt the butter in a small wok or saute pan. When it foams add the salmon and sprinkle generously with the red pepper or chili powder. In a small cup or bowl, mix the soy sauce with 1tbs of the lemon juice/vinegar/wine and add a teaspoon of brown sugar, adding salt to taste. Turn over the fish and pepper it. drain the black beans and then add to a small sauce pan to heat. cube the avocado and pick the firm fruit out of the canned mix, get rid of the cherries and bananas. dice it into smaller pieces and combine with avocado. Put your tortillas on top of the sauce pan to steam them. Mince the garlic.The fish should be pretty done, you want salmon to be almost raw in the middle, not super firm. break it up with a fork and add the garlic. Saute a few minutes until everything is looking happy. Grab a tortilla and add a pinch of cabbage, a few spoons of fish, top with the avocado fruit and then drizzle with the sauce
