Anchovy And Macadamia Nut Wrap-Ups. Appetizer? Perhaps…Or, Maybe Just PURE, Body-Loving Nutrition

The other night, I was in the kitchen preparing dinner. I was starving. My starving signal came too late, it was instant nausea. I opened the cupboard to grab a snack, and a little teeny, tiny dust ball tumbled across the shelf. I think I heard crickets. Ugh, no food.

Wait….a can of anchovies. (Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, an excellent source of protein, and high in minerals like: magnesium, potassium, and iron). Also, at the back of the cupboard sat a bag of macadamia nuts (Packed full of essential fatty acids, protein, antioxidants, selenium, B vitamins, and fiber).


My mind swirled with possibilities. Listed below is the final result:

 Anchovy Macadamia Nut Wrap-Ups!


 Now PAY attention. This is a very difficult recipe!

You take an anchovy…



And, wrap it around a macadamia nut…



Look at how cute they are!



 You eat’em!

When I fed these delicious concoctions to my husband, he replied that they were excellent examples of salty wonderment and deliciousness! He actually ate a whole bowl of them! And, the best part is…they are gluten-free and Paleo-friendly!!!

What crazy last minute recipes have you created that ultimately became one of your favorites?
