As a man, who over the years does NOT cook, EVER, I decided to keep one of my new year resolutions alive by buying the book by Jamie Oliver entitled “5 Ingredients” in order to give my wife a break and show her that I can use other appliances in our Kitchen other than a kettle to make a cup of tea. (“5 Ingredients UK“)
The following recipe is not one of Jamies but it does fall within the 5 ingredients band – well almost if you take the salt & pepper as being the condiments.
Low Carb Smoked Salmon Stuffed Avocados (Healthy Keto Recipe)
Avocados are the new favorite Super Food and are actually one of the best low glycemic, fat burning superfoods there is. Their mild taste makes them so adaptable to so many recipes—any time of the day. This is the perfect long-lasting breakfast food, combined with the protein power of eggs.
Avocados contain lots of healthy, blood sugar-lowering, satisfying, monounsaturated fats, in addition to antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and are considered one of the top five most beneficial foods for diabetes prevention. Studies show a breakfast high in healthy fats and protein will turn on your fat burning, blood sugar-stabilizing power the whole day!
This recipe is super easy, but really delicious, satisfying and filling—sure to become one of your favorites!
4 oz smoked salmon
Salt? Black pepper
Chili flakes or Sriracha sauce
Preheat oven to 425°F. Halve the avocados, then remove the large pit—I do this by holding the avocado carefully, fingers out of the way, and hitting it with a sharp knife blade. The pit then sticks to the blade and it comes out cleanly. If the hole looks small, scoop out a small bit extra with a spoon.
Arrange the avocado halves on a cookie sheet, and line the hollows with strips of smoked salmon. Crack each of the eggs into a small bowl, then spoon the yolks and however much white the avocado will hold. Add salt and fresh cracked black pepper on top of the eggs, to taste. Sprinkle with chili flakes if desired.
Gently place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the eggs look cooked. Dot with Sriracha, serve warm and enjoy! Serves 4.
If you’re following a ketogenic (keto diet) or other type of low-carb diet, this is a perfect snack or meal!
You should also know that this recipe is an almost perfect low-glycemic snack for Diabetics, due to it’s blend of fiber, healthy fats, protein from the salmon and eggs, antioxidants, and almost zero carbs that impact blood sugar. Speaking of Diabetes, make sure to read this page next:
