- 1 Bagel
- Cream Cheese
- 1 Lemon
- Smoked Salmon
- Half A Red Onion
- Black Pepper
- 1 Avocado
The good news is that there are only 7 ingredients and they keep for ages so you can store them all the time. The absolute key is a nice ripe avocado.
Slice the bagel in half. Childs play this part.
Chuck it into the toaster
Peel the onion and throw half of it back into the fridge.
You need to slice it up as thin as possible. Nothing worse than a big chunky piece of onion.
Peel the skin off the avocado. Like I said, if the avocado is hard and not ripe you are pretty much screwed before you even start.
Run your knife around the stone
Remove the stone and you'll be left with 2 beautiful halves.
Scoop out the cream cheese. You don't need a load of it.
Squeeze in half the lemon.
Squeeze the other half over the avocado so as it doesn't lose it's colour.
Crack a load of black pepper into the cream cheese and stir it all up
Remove the toasted bagels and that is it. Time to assemble
Spread the cheese evenly over the bagel.
You want enough to cover it but don't have it overloaded in cheese. A nice thin layer would do.
Place the avocados on top. Try and keep them straight for the presentation.
Sprinkle the onions on top
Place your salmon on top in nice neat little piles. Don't be messy.
Squeeze every last drop of juice out of the lemons over the salmon.
There you go! Absolutely delicious.
