Laptop Lunches #143

Sesame seaweed snacks, nectarine chunks with kiwi, a salmon salad stuffed avocado (recipe below), and chunks of tomato.

The seaweed snacks did not belong with this meal; all while I ate them I was desperate for some rice. But they were good! I will look forward to pairing them with rice at a later time. I tried a new thing, and it worked out--always exciting.

And now, the stuffed avocado:

I'm very proud of this one. I wish I'd had the sense to pack it in a different lunch box; this one got slightly smushed (still tasted amazing though). A tip: if you're going to pack a stuffed avocado, also pack a spoon. It's hard to get all that goodness out with just a fork.

(I had the sense, as you can see. I always pack a spoon, though, even if it doesn't get used.)

Salmon Salad Stuffed Avocado

4 oz. cooked salmon filet
3 tablespoons light mayo
2 tablespoons celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons capers
2 teaspoons dried parsley (or about 3 tablespoons fresh, chopped)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 avocado

Flake salmon in a small bowl. Add all ingredients other than avocado and stir until well mixed. Slice avocado in half lengthwise and remove pit. Fill hollows of avocado with salmon salad mixture.

Serves: Two.

  1. I like those seaweed snacks too! Often eat them as crisps or added to my lunch (to eat with rice). They also work well for deconstructed /lazy sushi..

    1. They are good, but they definitely need rice! Is deconstructed/lazy sushi just the snacks with rice and fish or veggies?

    2. Deconstructed /lazy sushi is when I'm too lazy to roll up a maki :-)

      Basically it has all the sushi ingredients, ie rice with sushi vinegar and the fillings (like salmon or crab, cucumber, omelet, avocado etc, but instead of nicely rolled up into a maki it's all in one bowl topped by nori strips.

      Or sometimes I pack a bento with small portions of the sushi ingredients and mix it when I eat my lunch.
