Burrata Burrito with Smoked Salmon and Creamy Beer Pesto

Burrata Burrito with Smoked Salmon and Creamy Beer Pesto

Let’s do something fun, something that doesn’t require a face mask and hand sanitizer. Find your quarantine person and somehow bring up that you want to do a cooking challenge, you against them. But, there are some rules of course. 

Rule 1: The dish can’t take more than 15 minutes. 

Rule 2: The dish can’t require any cooking. 

Rule 3: You have to make at least one element of the dish from scratch. 

Impossible! They will say. Ask them how scared they are to lose to you and if there should be some sort of wager involved. As in: the loser has to do all the {insert least favorite chore here} for the next week. This may get them to accept your challenge. 

Then, let them go first. They will probably make a salad because it’s obvious and basic. You are NOT obvious or basic. But you’ll eat the salad and pretend as if this will be difficult to beat. But the following night, you will serve them this. This no-cooking-full-of-yum-and-happiness burrito. And they will lay the golden fiddle at your feet because they’ll know that they’ve been beat. 

It’ll be fun. You should try it.

  1. I ADDED SMALL MOZARELLA BALLEL INTO THE PESTO SAUCE SINCE I COULDN’T FIND BURRATA AND IN THE END ALSO INCLUDED MATCHSTICK CARROTS FOR CRUNCH. I ACTUALLY SERVED IT AS A DIP WITH GREAT SUCCESS!!

  2. Oh my gosh, this is such a creative recipe that I had to read the headline a few times! I made the burritos for a family beach outing this past weekend and they were such a hit with my kids. I’ll be pulling this one out a few more times this summer season!
