Nigella Lawson’s Delicious Salmon and Avocado Salad

We are big fans of Nigella Lawson. And we're excited that she is visiting Sydney!

In Celebration of Nigella’s Sydney Visit, 2016

We are big fans of Nigella Lawson. We love her always-delicious-recipes and casual way of cooking, enjoy her particular style and admire her resilience.

And I’ve gotta say that the Monday Morning Cooking Club gals are pretty bloody excited to see Nigella Lawson at a Business Chicks breakfast this Friday morning.

We have a connection with Nigella – she saw our first book in a shop window in Bondi when she was in Sydney in 2011 and ordered her copy online. I was the very excited person who completed her order!

She then wrote a great Kitchen Witter post about our book, and was later kind enough to endorse the soft cover version of Monday Morning Cooking Club – the food, the stories, the sisterhood in 2013: “Just seeing it in the shop window made me feel comforted; having the book at home is pure cosy joy

So, in celebration of Nigella’s 2016 visit to Sydney, we decided to cook one of her recipes from her most recent book ‘Simply Nigella’. This lovely book was one of our top 10 cookbooks for 2015.

We’re all feeling healthy (post festive season and all) and chose her Salmon, Avocado, Watercress and Pumpkin Seed Salad. What I love about this recipe is that Nigella shares an excellent way to poach salmon fillets and the salad is simply great (and SO healthy) on its own but also makes a good base if you want to add to it (some of us just can’t live without carbs and onions in a salad). I love it as it is and my family would enjoy the addition of brown rice, pickled onions and roasted pumpkin wedges.

We followed her recipe exactly, except that I couldn’t find any watercress where I am at the moment so I substituted baby rocket and spinach leaves. I also used activated organic 2die4 live foods pepitas (pumpkin seeds) which are particularly crunchy and well flavoured (and very dark in colour). Yum. And thanks Nigella for your wonderful recipes!

Happy not-quite-a-long-weekend-but-with-long-weekend-feels everyone! And what a blessing that the sun is shining. We hope to see lots of pics of BBQs and lamingtons. When inspiration grabs you and you find yourself in a baking mood, here is our delicious lamington recipe, there's still time to whip up a batch. What's cooking at your place this weekend? (And we are indebted to Railea Don for this wonderful iconic recipe ❤️}

Ingredients
Cake
125 grams butter (unsalted)
185 grams Caster (Superfine) Sugar
2 eggs
250 grams Self-Raising (Self-Rising) flour (1 2/3 cups)
1/2 cup milk or fresh orange juice
Icing
500 grams icing (confectioners) sugar
3 tablespoons best quality cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 tablespoon butter (unsalted)
1 cup hot water
250 grams shredded or desiccated coconut

Instructions
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 28 x 19 x 4 cm lamington tin.

To make the cake, cream the butter and sugar until the sugar is dissolved.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.

Gradually add the flour, alternating with the milk or orange juice.

Mix together well, then pour the mixture evenly into the prepared tin.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool completely.
Cut the cake into 4 cm squares, trimming the edges if necessary.

Mix the icing sugar and cocoa together in a bowl.

Put the butter into the hot water to melt, and mix into the icing sugar mixture until thick and smooth.

Drop the cake squares into the chocolate, ensuring the cake is fully covered, then remove very quickly. Drain the cake on a wire rack for a few seconds. Using a large cooking fork, roll in the coconut.
