Notes

Try these: Avocados are best enjoyed raw. Drizzle them with a little of your favourite salad dressing for a quick snack. Or dress up your prawn cocktail by tossing a little chopped avocado with the lettuce. However, there is no fixed rule that they can’t be cooked. Sliced avocado on a tomato and cheese grill is a great taste treat.

Cayenne pepper: Made from dried red chilies, cayenne pepper is very powerful and may overwhelm if overused, so it is wise to use sparingly for best result.

Sour cream: You can substitute by adding lemon juice to regular cream but it’s not as good.

Smoked ocean trout: Smoking meats and fish began in prehistoric times as a way of preserving food. It adds such a distinctive flavour.
