Smoked Salmon Sandwich

Smoked Salmon Sandwich | www.notafoodexpert.com

It’s not every day that we feel inspired or have plenty of time in hands to cook. So of these days people here in Belgium usually go for a sandwich. Which can be a great idea since you can whip it up fast, not a lot of ingredients required, and almost no dirty dishes at the end (which I really appreciate). So let me go straight to the point and share the recipe of this beauty.

The other day I was walking in the supermarket, wondering what would I cook for dinner and then I  as I was passing the fish counter, I noticed these lovely Trouts from the Belgian Ardennes . Since I love fish, I thought I should give them a try.

This was the first time I cooked whole fish by myself, and I can assure you it’s VERY easy (once they’re cleaned and gutted of course) and the trouts are ready to serve in only 15- 20 min, which also means it’s a very fast option to cook! The presentation of this dish is great and I can assure you , everybody is going to be impressed.

Okay, I love these cookies!!! Yes they’re low carb, made with sweetener, but these can fool anyone if you don’t tell them what’s in there! They are crispy and buttery, with a hint of dark chocolate… When you can have those healthy and delicious cookies I see no pain in going healthy! Trust me on this one and run to the kitchen to make a batch, and all I hope is that you can resist not eating them all at once!

Seared Garlic and Butter Scallops

Ever since I’ve moved to Belgium, I started paying more attention to the scallops. every time I would buy some fish they were there, white and shiny. And of course as curious as I am I had to try them out. Why not jump into another recipe challenge… So I did my homework one of these night I couldn’t sleep, reading all about scallops taste, recipes, how to prepare them perfectly and I’m not quite sure I nailed them yet! But I have to be honest, at the same time they’re super easier, fast to cook they also required attention so they don’t get overcooked.

Buttermilk Blueberry Cake

Buttermilk Blueberry Cake | www.notafoodexpert.com

Yes, I know. 2017  has just started and everybody is thinking about dieting. But since I began the year rather sick, I haven’t started a diet myself and thought I could indulge this lovely cake and give in to my sugar craving.

It’s a simple cake to make with easy to find ingredients. Buttermilk is the key to how moist this cake is, and although you might finish mixing the batter thinking it’s not liquid enough, let it be! Buttermilk will work its magic. Also make sure butter and egg are room temperature cause this is usually a game changer for every cake you bake!

That being said , my last advice is : Don’t forget to save a few pieces for breakfast, this cake is a great option to start out the day!
