Recipe: Salmon and Ricotta Wrap, Creamy Avocado Pasta and Tiramisu Trifle


A lot of times, we would wish that we could prepare a luxurious meal, because after all, food is good for the soul. But the thought of all the time and ingredients needed is very often a complete turn-off. Hence, during the past week, I took the time to sit down with my magic markers, paper and some inspiration to think of what meal could fit the criteria of a busy, lazy yet gastronomically conscious student.

First: Salmon x Ricotta Wrap.

What you need: 

1-2 slices of Smoked Salmon

1 tablespoon of Ricotta

1 Wrap

Ground black pepper

Chopped Chives 

A hint of Lemon Juice



Simply, place the slice(s) of salmon on the wrap, in the middle, add the ricotta followed by some pepper and chives on the top. Finally, serve with a light squeeze of lemon juice.


Next: Creamy Avocado Pasta. (as inspired by ohsheglows)

What you need:

Half a medium sized Avocado 

1/4 of a Lemon Juiced

1 Garlic Clove

1/4 teaspoon of Kosher Salt

Some Basil

1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

A serving of Pasta (Linguine was used here)

Ground Black Pepper

Topping it off with some Caviar (optional, obviously!)


Start by blending together the garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. Later, add in the avocado, basil and salt. You can blend it with a blender or a food processor or anything else that would be able to do the job. When it’s all smooth and creamy, add in the cooked pasta and top it off with some black pepper and caviar if you wish.


To end: Tiramisu Trifle. (as inspired by Food Network)

What you need:

1/4 pound of Mascarpone

1 and half tablespoon of Sugar

6 Ladyfingers

1/2 cup of Espresso

1/2 tablespoon of rum

Whipped cream

Cocoa Powder


Mix the mascarpone with the sugar. Place it at the very bottom of your bowl. In a cup, mix the espresso with the rum. Next, dip the ladyfingers in the mixture(espresso/rum) then carefully place them on the top of your bowl. To finish, layer the whipping cream and the very top of your tiramisu as you sprinkle a generous amount of cocoa power to serve.

Next: …Enjoy!
