Smoked salmon dip recipe

By Bernard Preston

I do not know about you, but we lead unbelievably fast lives. Stop the world, I need to get off the train. This side dish you can make in five minutes; time it. Quite apart from the excellent protein, it is rich in omega-3 and vitamin D; it is perfect banting food if you are trying to lose weight. Only then you should not enjoy it on crackers.


Well, now five years after I first wrote this blog, the train has stopped and I have alighted in Hilton, South Africa; and I cannot easily get the fresh salmon that we enjoyed weekly in Holland. Retirement has its downside; no fish market. Scotland, Norway and the North Atlantic are a long way away. We have to make do with pilchards.

I can't say I like most of the cookery programs on television these days; they make the daily meal so complicated and time consuming that many I suspect resort to convenience food. Jamie Oliver is perhaps the exception; he too is obsessed by healthy food made fast.

Smoked Salmon Dip Recipe

Smoked salmon dip recipe uses only the most basic ingredients; if you don't regularly have fresh parsley and lemon, fresh or frozen chilli, feta cheese and olive oil in your home, then it's time to step up to better health.

  1. 200g Smoked Salmon, or thereabouts, honestly 50g more or less makes no difference.
  2. 200g Feta cheese or, if your cholesterol like mine is disgusting low, then try cream cheese now and again; not too often.
  3. A slice of lemon, peeled and depipped, pith and all.
  4. A couple sprigs of parsley.
  5. A small slither of blanched red chilli; include the pips and placenta, the white part that holds them.
  6. A stick of celery.
  7. Half a clove of garlic.
  8. Olive oil and yoghurt to taste.
  9. No salt, but a twist or two of black pepper is nice.

Unexpectedly, chilies are strongly anti inflammatory but the active agent capaicin is found mainly in the seeds and placenta; blanching it lightly, together with the garlic, takes out the sting.

Extra virgin olive oil is also anti inflammatory; these are the kinds of foods we should be enjoying daily, especially if we have a lot of aches and pains.

It's also particularly good if you are suffering from blood vessel disease and even for the alimentary canal in small amounts.

That took you four minutes to prepare, now

  • Chuck the lot into a bowl.
  • Blend for 30s; done.
Chili pips and placentaPeppadews and chilis

Unplug the blender, scrape out the remains, and now go on and make a MOUTABEL Baba Ghannouj dip. Put off by the name? It only takes ten minutes. Your guests will be on their knees pleading for your recipes.

One other healthful factor from salmon is that it is rich in one of the vitamins that significantly slow the development of frailty in the older person; read more about vitamin B6 food

Metabolic syndrome

A vitamin D deficiency is strongly linked to diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome is a grouping of four health risk factors:

  1. High blood pressure
  2. Abdominal obesity
  3. Abnormal cholesterol levels
  4. Raised blood sugar

Metabolic syndrome is strongly associated with diabetes and cardiovascular disease - heart attack, stroke, aneurisms, and other nasty stuff. So do something! This smoked salmon dip recipe on the table twice a week would be a good place to start.

Research done at the Free University (VU) Medical Centre in Amsterdam found that in a group of 1300 Dutch people, almost a half were Vitamin D deficient, and 37% had metabolic syndrome.

Those who were vitamin D deficient had a much higher risk of also having Metabolic syndrome.

In another study done at Johns Hopkins found that 90% of patients with adult onset diabetes (type 2) were vitamin D deficient. Those who had lower vitamin D blood levels were strongly associated with high blood sugar levels.

Vitamin D deficiency

A large part of the solution to a vitamin D deficiency would be solved by our smoked salmon dip recipe; it's linked to a host of serious diseases. A short walk in the sun with a hat but no sunscreen would help too.

Osteoporosis

Vitamin D is converted in the kidneys into a hormone, calcitriol, which regulates the concentration of calcium in your blood stream, regulating the healthy growth of bones. A deficiency leads to serious bone diseases including Rickets and Osteoporosis. It's getting monotonous, but a smoked salmon dip recipe would solve much of your problem.

It's possibly also associated with night cramps in the calf and foot, well known to be connected to a mineral deficiency; but which one?

Immune system

A vitamin D deficiency is linked to an ineffective immune system.

Vitamin D is also converted in white blood cells which are, after the skin, the first line of defense against invaders. In monocytes, and T and B lymphocytes, vitamin D is converted to substances which protect your body against invading viruses and bacteria.

Nerve-muscle inflammation

A vitamin D deficiency is linked to Nerve-muscle inflammation.

It controls the contraction and reduces anger in the tissues.
