  • 1 orange
  • 40gr almonds
  • 1 cucumber
  • 100gr goat cheese
  • fresh mint, thyme and basil
  • 1/2 baguette
  • 1 chilli
  • 1 lemon
  • extra virgin olive oil , salt and pepper  

 

 

 

Instructions

Put the griddle pan on medium high heat and griddle the chicken breast about 4-5 minutes on each side or until it’s cooked trough. At the same time slice the baguette and drizzle it with the olive oil and put it next to chicken and griddle on both sides. You can also brush the chicken with mustard to get a better aroma or add spices like cumin, coriander,turmeric. You are litteraly the master of your chicken . 🙂 Also you can marinate it in yogurt mixed with spices and then griddle it. This helps chicken to remain more succulent.

While you are waiting for chicken and bread slice the cucumber lengthwise with a peeler and stop peeling when you get to the seeds. Add the cucumber in the large bowl fallowing with mix lettuce sliced chilli , herbs , orange and goat cheese. You decide how you will cut your ingredients or do as I did. When chicken is done , slice in bite-sized chunks and add it in to the mixture. The same thing do with the bread.  Drizzle the ingredients with olive oil and lemon add salt and pepper and mix all together and then serve. I hope you’ll like it 🙂

Prolećna salata sa piletinom i bademima

Ovo je veoma brz , zdrav i jednostavan recept za koji vam treba najviše 20 minuta. Salata je puna hraniljivih sastojaka i vitamina , a opet veoma je lagana. Recept je namenjen za dve osobe mada ga možete udvostručiti. Takodje veoma je pogodna da je napravite više i da je ostavite u frižideru jer je i hladna veoma ukusna.

Sastojci

  • 1 pileći file
  • kesa mešane salata ili pola glavice ajzberg salate
  • 1 pomorandža
  • 40g badema
  • 1 krastavac
  • 100gr kozijeg sira
  • sveža nana, majčina dušica i bosiljak
  • 1/2 baget hleba
  • 1 čili
  • 1 limun
  • devičansko maslinovo ulje, so i biber

 

Instrukcije

Stavite gril tiganj na srednje jaku vatru i izgrilujte pileći file sa obe strane po otprilije 5 minuta , ili dok nije pečeno. Slobodno pecite 4 minuta i nakon toga file rasecite na pola i dovršite sredinu jer se ona najduže peče. Ovaj korak je dobar jer ćete svakako iseći file kasnije na sitne komade a ovako ste sigurniji da ce vam meso ostati sočnije i tačno ispečeno. Takodje možete da ga marinirate u jogurtu začinjenim raznim začinima kao što su kumin, korijander ili bilo koji začin koji volite. Ovaj korak takodje čini meso sočnijim i ukusnijim.

Dok vam se piletina peče isecite hleb i pecite ga sa malo maslinovog ulja sa obe strane dok ne dobije lepu boju . U veliku činiju ubacite naseckanu nanu, bosiljak,pomorandžu , bademe i koziji sir. Krastavac oljištite ljuštilicom po dužini da bi ste dobili lepe pruge i dodajte ga u činiju. Kada vam je piletina gotova pomešajte je sa ostalim sastojcima pospite malo maslinovog ulja i limuna i sve dobro promešajte. Posolite i pobiberite po želji i spremni ste da servirate salatu. Nadam se da će vam se svideti 🙂

Raspberry and dark chocolate(avocado) sorbet

DSC_2324

If you love someone or  you want to impress someone or group of people then this is a recipe for you. Raspberries and chocolate are two ingredients that everyone love and guess what  , they are even better when stand one to each other . If you see the photos , recipe looks similar to Michelin star restourants and it’s all about how you present the dish. At the last time I watched a lot of Michelin star chefs so I give a try to make something tasting like their desserts and to look like their dishes. You tell me if I was close 🙂

The other nice thing about this recipe is that’s too easy to make only thing that you need is blender or food precesssor , because it makes the sorbet more creamier and breaks the raspberries into a smooth mixture. But don’t worry if you don’t have blender I will tell you later in the post similar process without the blender and you will get the same results.

Ingredients 

  • 300gr fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 100gr of 70%  dark chocolate
  • 1 avocado
  • amaretto biscuits / or any other biscuits
  • fresh almonds
  • ice

Instructions

First you need to melt the chocolate over the bain-marie and add a little bit more cocoa if you want. Leave the chocolate to cool down a little bit and add it to a blender with half avocado and a few ice cubes , if you need add more ice during the blending . Blend for 5 min on max speed to make sorbet creamy. I didn’t add any sugar because I love bitterness from dark chocolate , but you are free to add. Avocado has only one purpose and that’s to make sorbet smooth and creamy , if you make it you will see that the taste of avocado somehow disappears , and on the other hand it’s far more healty than cream . Therefore the conclusion is that the avocado is a badass.

After you were made the mixture leave it in the freezer for at least 4 hours and take it out at least 30minutes before serving.

For raspberry sorbet you just need to put fresh or frozen rasppberries with a spoon of honey in the blender and blend for the same time on max speed.

As for the serving put a little plate upside down in the center of the bigger plate and rub the one side with a little bit of sorbet to allow the biscuits to stick and don’t move. Scoop the sorbet as you wish or as I do and put a few almond for a finishing touch. I hope you will enjoy and impress someone with this great recipe 🙂

Sorbe od maline i crne čokolade

Ovo je jedan veoma jednostavan recept koji možete spremiti u minimalnom vremenskom periodu , dok je sa druge strane prepun intezivnih ukusa koji se medjusobno odlično slažu. Poznato je da su maline i čokolada dobri prijatelji , a kada se nalaze zajedno na tanjiru sa amareto keksom dobija se potpuno nova dimenzija ukusa. Uz dobro aranžiranje , verujem da će ovaj recept prijatno iznenaditi sve koji ga budu probali. Aranžiranje sam uradio po uzoru nekih poznatih kuvara , takodje vlasnika Mišelinovih zvezdica kao i način pripreme dezerta. Opet s druge strane smatram da ovako nešto može da napravi svako kod kuće , jer je značaj dat na kvalitetnim sastojcima , kvalitetnoj čokoladi dok je period  i način spremanja izuzetno kratak.

Sastojci

  • 300gr svežih ili zamrznutih malina
  • 100gr kvalitetne crne čokolade(min 70% kakaa)
  • amareto keksići
  • pola avokada 
  • par badema

Instrukcije

Iznad činije koja se greje na pari istopiti čokoladu i zatim ostaviti malo da se ohladi. Potom u blender ubacite istopljenu čokoladu i polovinu avokada i dodajte još malo kakaa u prahu ako želite i koju kocku leda ako je potrebno. Ja nisam dodavao šećer  , jer volim gorak ukus crne čokolade , ali vi možete ako želite. Smesu blendirajte minimum 5 minuta na najvećoj brzini i potom je stavite u frižider na četri sata da se ohladi i stegne uz povremeno mešanje na sat vremena. Sorbe izvadite minimum pola sata pre posluživanja.

Sorbe od maline je još jednostavniji , samo ubacite sveže ili zamrznute maline u blender sa dve ili više kocki leda i kašikom šećera ili meda i blendirajte oko 5 minuta dok ne dobijete homogenu smesu.

Hranu sam dekorisao tako što sam stavio manji tanjir okrenut naopačke u veći tanjir i namazao sa malo sladoleda jedan deo tanjira  da bih lakše posuo izmrvljene amareto keksiće i da bi oni zadržali oblik na tanjiru. Zatim sam stavio kugle sladoleda nasumično i poređao još par celih badema kao što je i prikazano na slici. Nadam se da će vam se svideti 🙂
