Fish Taco with Guacamole & Homemade Corn Tortillas

It’s time to have some friends over and you want a meal that’s festive, but not too complicated. So, what’s for dinner tonight? Fish taco à la Food Pharmacy! In this recipe, the white flaky fish is layered with mango salsa, cilantro and guacamole, all tucked inside warm corn tortillas. And rest assured, the actual preparation is much easier than you think.

You need two fillets of white fish. Cut the fillets into cubes and marinate with cilantro, chili pepper, garlic, lime, ginger, tamari and honey. Pan fry the fish at low temperature and set aside.

Change into something festive and mix almost 1 cup corn flour, almost 1 cup psyllium husk, almost 1 cup sesame seeds, 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt in a bowl.

Add almost 1 cup of water (or any milk) and 1-2 tablespoons of rapeseed oil and stir until smooth.

Divide the dough into six pieces, and shape each piece into a small ball. Roll out into a corn tortilla between two baking papers, then bake the tortilla over low heat using a cast iron pan. Wait a couple of minutes and turn the bread to bake some more. Kind of like making pancakes.

Congratulations! You’ve made your first tortilla!

Top the tortilla with all the things you love. Diced mango? Cilantro? Spicy chili mayonnaise? Guacamole? So easy to make with ripe avocados, garlic, lime, cilantro, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pickled red onions? Peel and thinly slice a red onion, and put in a heatproof bowl. Then bring 0.5 cup water, 2 tbsp white or red wine vinegar and a pinch of salt to a boil, and pour over the sliced onions. Done!

Dinner is ready and the guests will arrive in less than five minutes. But one burning question remains: what should we wear?

Muy bien! Enjoy!

Raw 3-Ingredient Strawberry Balls

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means we will be posting a pink recipe here on the blog every Friday starting today with … well, what’s under the kitchen towel?

Wait for it …

Voilà! Raw strawberry, cashew and coconut balls!

As you already know, we LOVE few-ingredient recipes and this one really hits the spot.

You can of course flavor the batter in a variety of ways: vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, licorice powder and lemon to name a few. Or simply enjoy the balls as they are. Nothing wrong with a good old-fashioned strawberry, right?

Raw Strawberry Balls
(around 12 pieces – if you can resist tasting the batter)

1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup raw cashew nuts
1/2 cup coconut flakes (+ some for rolling)

Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and mix. Scoop out small amounts of the mixture and roll into balls, then roll each ball in coconut. Eat right away or store in the freezer.

It’s Cinnamon Bun Day – Again!

Once again, it’s Cinnamon Bun Day in Sweden. Can’t believe it’s already been a year. Time flies! We could of course have come up with a brand new recipe for cinnamon rolls but, well, we didn’t. Here are Luke Skywalker’s Cinnamon Rolls. Again. They’re just too good to be true.

And no, they’re not going in the oven.

Luke Skywalker’s Cinnamon Rolls

”Bun dough”:
almost 1 cup cashew nuts
0.5 cup oat flakes
0.5 cup grated coconut
1 pinch of salt
8 fresh dates (pitted)
3-4 teaspoons of water

Filling:
almost 1 cup almonds (preferably soaked)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
8 fresh dates (pitted)
1 tablespoon of water

Roast the cashew nuts and the oat flakes in the oven at no more than 212° Fahrenheit (or 100° Celsius) for about 10 minutes. Mix the ingredients for the bun dough using a high speed blender, and roll out into a rectangle between two baking papers. Once again, use your high speed blender and mix the ingredients for the filling. Spread evenly over the dough. Roll the whole thing (like a Swiss roll) and let cool in the fridge, then cut the roll into slices. Garnish each slice with grated coconut.
