牛油果沙沙酱 ~ Guacamole


 
 
鳄梨酱是南美洲阿兹特克文化里传统的调料,在墨西哥,几乎每家餐厅都会提供这个酱。而Avacado 又被称为牛油果,油梨,樟梨。这种果实盛产于墨西哥,中美洲和南美洲,属于被子植物门的樟科。因为它含油量很高,所以又有森林黄油的美称。虽然含油量很高,但所含的绝大部分脂肪属于不饱和脂肪酸(胆固醇含量很低),非常容易被消化吸收,非常适宜年老体弱者调养身体食用,同时,牛油果还具有高蛋白,搞能量和低糖份的特点,因此,在美洲国家,常常被用来当做主食使用。牛油果有很多种吃法,可以生吃,可以用来做饮料,可以帮助提升海鲜的味道,可以卷入寿司,可以做汤,等等等等。。在我喜欢的几种吃法中,首当其冲的就是这个guacamole,不需要煮,只要将几样简单的原材料混合在一起。天然食材的完美结合后,带来的好滋味让人一口接一口。。

这个guacamole 和我之前做的avocado mayo 口感不一样哦!
 
材料:
熟透的牛油果3
洋葱半个 (切小丁)
辣椒2 (切小丁)(我没放
番茄1个,
青柠檬 1
香菜 半把 , 切细末( 我没放
橄榄油2 茶匙 ( 我没放 )
黑胡椒,盐适量。

 
做法
1.将去核去皮后的牛油果搅成泥,但是这个过程不能使用搅拌机,因为搅拌机会破坏牛油果的细胞组织,影响口感和味道。(如果没有这种石磨,找一把叉子来捣碎牛油果也行

2.将准备好的材料混合倒入盆中,挤入柠檬汁。加入橄榄油。

3.盐和黑胡椒粉的份量依照个人的口味来添加(如果可以使用新鲜搅碎的黑胡椒会更好),每个人的口味都不同,但是建议不要调味太重,这样牛油果的天然味道就会被盖掉,况且吃太多的盐对身体也不好。

4.完全搅拌后,在牛油酱表面点缀几片香菜叶,周围撒上玉米片就可以享用了。
