Valentine's Day Hamper - Superior Gold Salmon

Valentine’s Day Hamper – Superior Gold Salmon

Love is in the air!!! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner less than 48 hours!! My Dearest Readers are you prepared to spoil your loved ones? I know many say it’s a very commercial day and everyday should be Valentine’s day but… I really love the excuse to dress up and go out for a date lunch or night 😀 Thanks you Superior Gold Salmon and Keep Left PR, Mr Bao and I had a Pre-Valentine’s Day dinner at home last weekend.

Happy Pre-Valentines day!

Happy Pre-Valentines day!

We were so spoilt with the hamper with the smoked salmon, bread, champagne and even champagne glasses hehe For those who are not familiar with Superior Gold Smoked Salmon, they use Australian seafood and source the salmon responsibility and is easily available at local supermarkets 🙂 The ever lovely Sarah from Keep Left gave me a couple of recipes and given my cooking skills aren’t too great… I definitely chose one of the easiest to make and impress Mr Bao.

Superior Gold Mango and Avocado Salsa

I chose the Superior Gold Mango and Avocado Salsa which is very easy to make, no cooking involved, only some chopping and assembling then it’s done! Mr Bao was certainly impressed with it and thought the smoked salmon on top looked like a rose haha I will be sharing the recipe below for you guys to try too!

As for our mains, I handed the cooking back to Mr Bao and he decided to keep it simple and make steak with greens served with a bubbly glass of champagne. He swears by the Heston method where he flips the steak every 3 minutes, its always perfectly medium rare!

Chocolate fondue at home

I once again cheated for dessert haha I bought a little chocolate fondue from Paris, basically it’s a pot of 70% cacao chocolate in a ceramic pot you can head it up in the microwave, bain marie or oven. Funny story is I didn’t realise all instructions was in French so I had to go to Facebook for translation help 😛 I used the microwave method, because I’m lazy haha super easy, just microwave it in 30 seconds, take it out and mix keep repeating 3 to 4 times until its all melted.

I served it with strawberries, banana and to make it extra special and sweet white chocolate Kit Kats 😀 Strawberries are still the classic and my favourite hehe what’s your?

    What a coincidence, Daisy … I bought this exact salmon at the supermarket yesterday and just had some for lunch … it was delicious and I’ll definitely be buying it again. Happy Valentine’s Day to you both x

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you both, Daisy! Did Mr. Bao arrange the tomatoes into a rose with the steak? hehe
