Corn Tortilla with Salmon, Beetroot Humus and Horseradish Cream


To define my affection towards salmon is near impossible. I try to be a conscious eater and thus eat predominantly vegetarian. But I have absolutely no willpower against salmon. Yesterday, I was at a wedding with a big buffet. I ended up with a plate consisting of only salmon and vegetables. Then, as a dessert, I had some more salmon, thus skipping the cheesecake. 

I can hear you gasping right now. I’m still shocked too. I guess thats how much I love salmon. 

IMG_0528After my big salmon-splurge yesterday, I was having some serious cravings for more salmon. So I whipped together this lunch that turned out to be pretty spectacular. I discovered that salty salmon, sweet beetroot hummus, sour apple and a punchy horseradish cream make the perfect filling for a corn tortilla (or a luxe sandwich, for that matter!). The recipe is quick and simple, but you will definitively make an impression if you serve this for lunch. Plus, you can’t really ever go wrong with salmon, can you?
