06 May Avocado Rose

20160506-avocado0720160506-avocado08

I have made my first attempt of carving an avocado rose. Just so you know I’m not a fan of avocado but I’m that Instagram foodie enjoy looking at the food more than anything else #foodporn, I should have given myself a try.

By simply google-ing and youtube-ing you will be able to find tons of tutorials out there. It doesn’t look difficult but you just need to know a few tricks.

1) Choose a ripe but firm avocado. Don’t choose the already too soft and mushy avocado to begin with.

2) Cut avocado horizontally in half and gently peel off the skin. Be gentle!

3) OIL your knife and cutting board before you start to slice!!!! I’m going to repeat this one more time, OIL ! I found this is the trick to make the slicing part much more easier. One of the common reasons that people fail because avocado sticks to the knife.

4) Thinly slice the half avocado.

5) Push and fan out the avocado slices. Make them into “n” shape.

6) Roll the slices into centre and form a rose. To make a more fully blooming rose, try pushing the petals outward as you can see mine doesn’t look like a fully open rose. Just make sure you don’t push it too hard to break off the overall shape.

7) Serve it on salad, toast or anything you like.  I just like it very simple with fresh ground pepper and some Maldon sea salt. You can also add herbs or cayenne pepper.

酪梨玫瑰最近在網路上瘋傳,先不論味道,只是用眼睛去品嚐已經非常吸引了。連我這個不愛酪梨的也有興趣做做看。

做法在網上很容易找到,其實也真的不難做,可是有幾個小撇步可以分享一下。

1)記得選不能過熟的酪梨,太軟卷起來不容易,而且容易爛掉

2)橫切酪梨之後,用手要把皮去掉,記得不能太用力

3)最重要是在刀面上還有砧板上抹上橄欖油,抹完好才開始切薄片。大部份人失敗的原因都是因為酪梨卡在刀子上,切出來就不完整了。

4)把薄片慢慢一點一點扇開,成一個”n“型

5)然後往內中心卷,一直卷成玫瑰形狀就可以了

6)如果想讓玫瑰看起來像盛開一樣,記得往外輕輕推開花瓣

7)  最後撒上海鹽和黑胡椒,伴沙拉或者吐司吃也是很不錯
