Scott Gooding makes healthy food look and taste amazing, so when I was invited down for a cooking class to checkout Whirlpool's latest technology: 6th SENSE I was excited. On the menu today was Chicken Tacos with Guacamole and Salmon Poke Bowl.

3 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper
2 tomatoes - cored, seeds removed and diced

1-2 limes juiced
1 small red onion finely chopped.

Pre heat oven to 190c (if you have a Whirlpool 6th SENSE Technology this will manage the cooking process for you). – make a small incision under the skin on the breast of the chicken and place the butter between the skin and the chicken – Inert the onion and lime into the cavity of the chicken – Place in a baking tray, add olive oil and season – Bake for about 60 minutes then remove and allow to rest for 10 minutes – Pull the chicken apart and place in bowl with more seasoning – Place the onion in a bowl with water and soak for 5-10 minutes, then rinse and drain – Mash the avocado with a fork and add the lime (to taste), coriander, cumin and chopped onion then season – add a tsp of chopped tomato to a lettuce cup – place a small handful of the chicken on top – add tsp of guacamole and garnish with micro herbs.

Before I go on with method; that's one awesome tattoo you have there Scott!
Combine all the ingredients for the dress and whisk/stir, set aside and allow the flavours to infuse (adjust accordingly to get the right balance of spice, sour, salt and sweet) – Bring some salted water to the boil – place the salmon fillet in the water and return to the boil – Once boiling remove from the heat and set asie with lid on for 8-10 minutes – In a bowl combine the avocado, lime, coriander and gently mash together with seasoning – Arrange the other ingredients in the bowl with the loose salad leaves comprising the base – Once cooked remove the salmon from the water, pull the meat apart and place in the bowl – Drizzle the dressing and dress with sprouts or micro herbs.
This is a quick healthy dish to make and tastes sensational.
