Ingredients

As needed:

 

avocado

As needed:

 

puff pastry

Preparation method

  • Slice the avocado and flatten between two layers of plastic foil. You can do this with a butcher's mallet or a saucepan.
  • Lightly roll with a rolling stick or pin to ensure that the avocado is now of uniform thickness.
  • Place the avocado on a suitable tray and freeze for a few hours.
  • Remove from the freezer just before serving and use a round cutter to cut out circles. Place between sheets of cling film in the freezer until use.
  • Place sheets of all-butter puff pastry on a baking tray covered with a silicon sheet and use a fork to prick holes in the pastry to prevent it from rising too much during baking.
  • Bake until cooked in an oven at 200°C.
  • Allow the pastry to cool before cutting it into the same sized circles as the avocado. Cutting the pastry after baking gives you a much nicer effect as the layers will be clearly visible.
  • Place the froze avocado slices on the pastry and leave to defrost.
  • Finish off, e.g. with olive oil, lime zest and Maldon salt.

Serving suggestions

  • As a basis for cold starters with such ingredients as marinated orsmoked salmon,prawns, tuna, goat's cheese, feta and tomato.
