Avocado Entrée

Guess what I recalled when I was tasting the avocado? It tasted like Century Egg Yolk. So I tested out with some pickled ginger, those that we use it for century egg and sushi. Not sure anyone else had tried that. If you like the pickled ginger, you will love this. As the pickled ginger add an appetizing flavour to the otherwise bland avocado. So, this will be the special entrée.

Preparation: 10 mins

Ingredients (serves 4)

° 1 ripe avocado, diced
° ½ bottle preserved ginger slice/pickle ginger slice
° some toothpicks

1. Secure the avocado dices with one or two slices of twisted pickled ginger with a toothpick. Alternatively, just place some pickled ginger beside the avocado dices in a serving plate.
2. Serve as an appetizer.

Yes, you are right, it does taste like Century Egg Yolk.
Humm, you are really innovative;)But I think the yellowish pickled ginger is still blend. Personally for ginger slices, I prefer the Japanese sweet red ginger slices usually served at Jap restaurant. Wonder how it taste with it :P
Am looking fwd to your mango salad version :)

Hi anonymous, you are right. Japanese sweet ginger slices is real nice but Japanese ingredients are a bit expensive.

Avocado and mango salad is still under testing. Next to test will be Avocado Spread.
