Times are getting awesome, I snatched a great deal - a tray of kiwi berries from New Zealand for three bucks. I don't know if that makes me stupid, but I still think it's a great deal compared to the silly tray of raspberries beside that goes for eight bucks. These little soldiers are sweeter and slightly more fibrous that their adult brothers.
Due to the bloody brilliant weather in Singapore, I felt like I was about to get a heat stroke in an air conditioned room. But it's okay because I've decided to make a fruit salad for myself. Yep. It's one of those super classified survival tips many people fail to understand. Fruit salad saves lives.
I'm not going to post a recipe today, it's only going to be descriptions, because this is supposed to save lives. Let's get focused, alright?
What you see above is fresh passion fruit pulp. Mine's a little on the ripe side, it's way too sweet. So I added some extra virgin olive oil and a hint of salt. The olive oil is for fun and the salt is for rehydration. I mixed them up good.
Then I wanted to have some more fun. Survival should be all about fun, by the way. If you haven't already know, that is. So I made some grilled banana scallops!
They just look right and taste right. If you're dying, well, they make you feel happier before you do, so this is essential I guess.
I sliced them into nice little coins, drizzled a little Grand Marnier and because I don't have a blow torch, I popped it into a toaster. Works pretty damn good.
I chopped up some apples and added them with the kiwi berries, grilled banana scallops, some toasted pine nuts. It was finished with the passion fruit kinda vinaigrette. Mmmmm.. Freakin' awesome =D
