Last week was quite difficult because after a wonderful long weekend in Lake Como (we will publish lots of post about the most beautiful villages of Lake Como in the next days!) we weren’t prepared to come back to dreadful weather and inboxes full of angry E-mails. But the weekend finally arrived and, miraculously, on Sunday the sun shined, the temperature was perfect and we didn’t miss the opportunity to enjoy a very long walk in the park. Sadly, we didn’t have our picnic basket prepared but it made us think about picnic season!
When we came back home after 3 glorious hours under the sun surrounded by beautiful nature, we wanted something light, fresh but delicious. And quick! So we prepared our favourite salmon and egg wraps. These could be a great picnic basket option, but they are a fantastic quick lunch or light dinner too. In fact, whenever we are very lazy to cook after a long day at work, we tend to prepare these salmon and egg wraps for dinner.
You will need (serves 2):
2 wraps or tortillas
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
75 gr smoked salmon, cut into small pieces
A handful of baby green leaves
Boil the eggs for about 6 to 7 minutes. You want the yolk to be creamy and runny. In the meantime mix the mayonnaise and the Worcestershire sauce.
Peel the eggs and mash them up with the sauce.
Now, heat your wraps or tortillas on a grill pan over a minute. Turn, and cook the other side another minute. You want them a little bit burnt but still soft.
To assemble, spread a layer of the egg salad over each wrap, add a generous helping to green baby leaves and the smoked salmon. Roll up and there you go: a flavourful, light and tasty dinner/lunch/ picnic snack. We can assure you that once you taste that creamy egg salad you will want to add it to all the sandwiches you prepare! It’s amazing!
PS: we’ve discovered that one of our favourite food bloggers, a person who we thought was honest and really creative, published a recipe on her blog and social media as hers, when we know for a fact it wasn’t. And we know it because that recipe has appeared in this blog as well, but as we always do, we credited its author, which happens to be a very famous cook. When this person’s followers praised her for her creativity, she even said it was a classic in her kitchen. Wait, what? It was shocking for us because we never thought she would do something like that. Now we doubt everything she publishes! So, if you have a blog or a social media channel, please credit the authors when needed. It’s ok to prepare your own take on other’s recipes, we all do it! But do not steal other people’s work please!
