The Ultimate Flavour Trio: Dijon, Olive Oil, and Red Wine Vinegar

These three magical key ingredients give these salmon bites a lovely punch of flavour. From the tangy kick of Dijon mustard to the smooth richness of olive oil and the subtle acidity of red wine vinegar. All store cupboard essentials that come together to make a properly banging marinade.

Elaborate recipes can sometimes feel overwhelming, but when it comes to quality ingredients less can truly be more.  My philosophy is to use clean and minimal ingredients to create maximum impact. In the words of Samin Nosrat; Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. It really is all you need to create flavour that pops.

The Creamiest Dairy-Free Yogurt Dip

Who says creamy dips can’t be dairy-free? This luscious coconut yogurt-based dipping sauce compliments the salmon bites flawlessly. With the refreshing zest of lemon juice and the herby notes of dill – so simple but so unbelievably delicious guys! Velvety smooth, zesty and a little bit herby, this is the perfect pairing for those flaky and crispy salmon bites.

For the best ever dairy free yogurt, I always recommend cocos organic. Guys this stuff is like foodie crack, it’s so unbelievably creamy and moreish. I cant’t get enough!
