A quick light meal that will feed your brain some brainfood as it contains some brain vitamins known to help improve concentration and memory.
Smoked salmon skewers (recipe from our soon to be published book, watch this space!)
1. Thread 2 thin slices of smoked salmon (40 g) onto a kebab skewer, alternating with a peeled and quartered kiwi fruit.
2. Spread 1 T flavoured cream cheese onto a slice of low-GI seed loaf.
3. Serve with a side salad of rocket and mixed lettuce leaves, 4 halved baby tomatoes and about 12 thin slices of cucumber.
4. Place the salmon and kiwi skewer on top and serve, sprinkled with fresh lemon juice.
Assembling tip: Smoked trout fillets or smoked beef can be used instead of the smoked salmon.
Food fact: Although flavoured cream cheese is high in fat, using only one tablespoon on a slice of bread instead of margarine or butter, not only adds depth of flavour, but also does not push the fat content of the meal up too much.
