Salmon, ham, avocado, beets, wasabi topped with passion fruit dressing and just by reading the ingredients you’ll get a hint of tastes that lays ahead.
An absolutely delicious dish which I’ve used both for New Year’s Eve as a starter or on a weekday as a healthy dinner.
Normally I have only used the passion fruit as a breakfast item but when used as a flavor in a dressing, it’s just super.
The passion fruit is ripe when the skin is rough. Cut in half and dig out the contents with a teaspoon. You usually eat both kernels and pulp.
Btw, did you know: passion fruit is an exotic fruit, but is actually a berry. More deep info about passion fruit.
Even more about passion fruit, I got connected with a web friend, Jesse, (@ Happy DIY Home) with an excellent post of how to grow your own passion fruit plant! Why not give them a visit and read the how-to.
The flowers on the passion fruit plant are two to three inches wide, and they have five whitish-green sepals with five white petals and a fringelike growth that comes out of a deep purple base. If this sounds intriguing and you want to know how to grow the passion fruit plant in your home, read on.”

Salmon ham avocado beets wasabi topped with passion fruit dressing
- 4 medium-sized yellow beets
- salt for the beets
- 3 passion fruit ripe
- 0,5 dl olive oil extra virgin
- 1 pinch of salt for the dressing
- 150 g serrano ham sliced thin
- 2 avocado ripe
- 200 g cold smoked salmon thin slices
- wasabi paste
- First, prepare the ingredients
- Start with the beets. Peel, cut in halves/quarters and let them boil in salted water. I've done it a couple times and they are some stubborn vegetables and will takes about up to 45 minutes to be soft and ready. You do not want to chew on a semi-ready beet.
- In the meanwhile, place the serrano ham on a baking sheet paper and set in the oven at 140°C/285°F for 15 minutes so the ham dries.
- Suggestion: add a few minutes for the really crispy touch. It's like super crispy bacon without fat.
- Further, scrape out the passion fruits and put in a blender together with olive oil. Use a mixer to blend a smooth dressing and taste with a pinch of salt.
- Slice the avocado. Spread salmon, beets and avocado on the plates. Shred the serrano ham into strips and spread over. Put a few clicks of wasabi dots around the plate, both for taste but as well as decoration. Finally, drizzle over the passion fruit dressing plus have decorated with some green hacked ruccola.Enjoy!
