Salmon and hot and spicy avocado rice with chia

I’ve never mixed avocado and rice before but I’ve no reason not to think avocado rice can’t work. In fact after trying it I’m convinced it should be a thing. It was really good, really tasty and seriously went well with the salmon.

I was surprised how the rice and avocado mixed so well. The addition of a little oil helped give it an almost risotto type feel. The lime juice adds zest and zing. Mixing chili flakes and lime juice always goes well and the rice carries the flavours really well.

For someone living alone this is a quick and easy meal you can make within 30 minutes, have the dishes done and be ready to watch the news on TV. If you drink wine or beer I image an alcoholic beverage (bevvie) would go down well with this meal. Sadly I can’t drink alcohol.

The golden syrup and Panko crumbs go really well together on the salmon. A lovely sweet crunchy mouthfeel.

If you make this, please let me know how it goes and how you might improve it.
