Creating Savory Recipes with Chocolate

Creating Savory Recipes with Chocolate

Chocolate can be used to make a variety of unique and delicious savory flavors.

When most people hear that a dish contains chocolate, they usually assume that it is a dessert. Chocolate can be used to make a variety of unique and delicious savory flavors. Not all chocolate is sweet. Unsweetened chocolate can actually be quite bitter. If you mix it with other ingredients, you can create new culinary experiences for your family, friends, and other guests.

Chocolate for Breakfast

Sorry, but chocolate for breakfast doesn’t always mean some sort of cake. An easy way to get some chocolate into your morning routine is to mix some melted dark chocolate with almond or other nut butter of your choice and spread it on toast, a biscuit, or some other vehicle (Or even just a spoon!). You can even add a bit of your favorite jam or jelly, chocolate and fruit pair very well! If you are someone who can’t start their day without a steaming bowl of oatmeal or cream of wheat, try mixing in a bit of chocolate, or maybe even some of your chocolate and nut-butter mixture. There are so many ways to start your day off with chocolate!

Savory Cocoa-Crusted Fish for Dinner

Cacao nibs can actually be used as a spice. Put them into a spice grinder and grind onto your dish in place of pepper. They can also make a great crust for a fish filet such as salmon. Cocoa butter can handle plenty of heat; start by spreading some melted cocoa butter onto the skin of your salmon, then press the cacao nibs into it. The cocoa butter should help the nibs stick to the fish better. Flip it over and lightly sprinkle salt onto the flesh side of your salmon filet. Heat up some more cocoa butter in your pan and put in the filet with the skin side down. Once a crust has formed on the skin, flip it over and finish in the oven. Take care not to overcook your fish; it should still be fairly pink in the center. Finish with a light sauce or just eat it as is, and enjoy!
