Smoked Salmon Avocado Toast


½ jumbo Hass avocado (ripe but firm) 1 slice thick cut bread (sourdough)
2 tsp lemon juice  Mayonnaise (to taste)
2 tsp lime juice
1 tsp butter
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/8 tsp of kosher salt Smoked Salmon
½ medium shallot, finely diced
¼ tsp of suya pepper


  • Slice avocado into 2 halves, remove the pit and discard. Scoop out one half of the avocado into a bowl and mash with a fork until chunky.
  • Combine with the shallots, lemon and lime juice, garlic, kosher salt, and suya pepper. Taste and add additional seasoning if preferred
  • Toast the bread until golden brown and crispy, then spread with mayonnaise
  • Smear the mashed avocado on the toast, top with smoked salmon
  • Eat immediately!

Safeyya’s Tip: Peel the skin on the other avocado half, sprinkle with lemon and lime juice, and smooth out any nicks. Slice thinly with a sharp paring knife. Slowly fan out avocado slices so that they form a long line with the slices overlapping each other. Remove the small slices from the ends to make the rose easier to shape. Starting from one end, curl avocado slices toward the center and keep curling until you get a rose. Sprinkle with your favorite seasonings and top with your favorite things (we recommend eggs, smoked salmon, sprouts, cheese, and fresh herbs)
