Hamburger and Foodpairing

What happens when you apply the Foodpairing Explorer to Hamburger? We will present two examples; one with fish and one with meat.

The core of the first burger is salmon. So if you want to create variations on top of this burger, select salmon in the Foodpairing Explorer.

Cucumber, kelp, lemon are popping up.

The cucumber and the tangy & salty seaweed bring out the green character of the salmon, while giving nice contrast with the mild meat. The lemon zest brightens up the flavours. Check out this combination in the Foodpairing Explorer®.

  • 100 g ground raw salmon
  • 5 g egg white
  • freshly grated zest of lemon
  • chopped dill
  • fine julienne of cucumber and marinated seaweed

Mix all ingredients. Make patties of 110 g. Fry on the grill.

Make incisions in the aubergines. Cook them 1h at 180 °C in a preheated oven. Let them cool down for 10’. Cut them in half and remove the pulp. Blend with olive oil and season to taste. Add some red wine vinegar.

AVOCADO PAIRING

As the end of the year is approaching, sites like Food&Wine start to launch ‘lists’ like the Top 10 restaurants dishes of 2011
One of the dishes is this salmon-sea beans-buckwheat-avocado by Salt of the Earth, Pittsburgh.

With avocado you can indeed do much more than making guacamole. Have a look at the Foodpairing tree of avocado;

So why not trying avocado, chicken and coconut sausage, yoghurt, white chocolate, mint (experiment by Peter Coucquyt)
