Our Creative Cooking Crew took the Summer off and now we are back to bring you many wonderful creative dishes.

This month is:  Get creative with the first meal of the day. It can be, sweet, savory, or somewhere in between. Just make it interesting!

The husband is on his diet, again, so I tried to make it this dish as healthy as possible.

I followed Julia Child’s recipe for Gravlax and the rest came from my kitchen.

I hope that you will try it the future because it was quite refreshing, filling and really satisfying.

Egg salad: 4 hard-boiled eggs, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon grain mustard, salt/pepper to taste.  You can alter the amount of mustard and yogurt to your liking.

Zucchini pancakes: 3 green zucchinis grated (put in paper towels after grating and squeeze until no liquid is left).  In a bowl add 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon of dill, salt/pepper, whisk then add zucchini and mix.  Add some oil to a frying pan and when heated,  form small pancakes and cook until golden on both sides.

I garnished with red onions, salmon caviar and capers–it’s a great touch!

BUEN PROVECHO!

    I love it! I’ve actually been thinking about making gravlax. Never actually tried it before. Does it taste super dilly? I’m not a huge fans of the herb, but I’m curious. Also, did you make a smaller piece of salmon or did you make a big batch like the recipe says? I’ve been thinking about trying it with a smaller piece of salmon so it doesn’t go to waste.

    • I did with a smaller piece of salmon. They both should match. I followed her recipe and to me it needed a bit more sugar and I used a whole,bottle of cognac. Like the ones you get on the plane. Not dilly at all. A lot of people don’t like the herb. It can be overwhelming but use at your discretion. My husband is earring it now. Lol

    I made split pea soup the other day and loaded it with dill! I am afraid to make gravlax but yours look amazing.
