Start with Gourmet Gift Ideas for the Foodie in Your Life
Luckily with a few keystrokes, I’ve located, ordered, tested, and tried these 2 gourmet gift ideas before I shared them with you.
My head is spinning, my fingers are very busy querying because I need 2 very nice gourmet gifts.
I am about to share with you both a food item as well as a small kitchen appliance, and both will be loved by the foodie in your life!
1 of 2 Gourmet gift ideas. Alaska on my travel mind
First of all I’ve fallen in LOVE with salmon all over again.
Yes, gift yourself gourmet gift ideas so you can enjoy the taste of the season!
Plus, you wouldn’t need a recipe for green and red holiday salmon if you were not gifting someone or yourself fresh salmon right?
What if, you could have fresh Alaskan Salmon shipped to your favorite foodie for the holidays?
Well, consider this option because I tasted a sampler box and was blown away by the taste, freshness, and texture of what salmon should be!
The Alaskan salmon is worth every single penny and trust me on this, if you get to taste a bit of what you send, you’ll never ever, buy store salmon again!
In fact, it was like striking gourmet gold!
Pistachio encrusted salmon
The salmon recipe thrives in color because of the pistachios.
I have incorporated them into the recipe for texture and flavor and I guess color too, as they pop!
Your red color comes in from the tomatoes, which I can tell you just need to be small tomatoes, cherry, or the like. What you will find is that the more color your use the more this WHOLE 30 recipe just explodes in color.
When the color is appealing, it just makes food more enjoyable.
In this case, the WHOLE 30 recipe I am sharing is very healthy too.
Prefer to use an Air fryer instead of your oven?
You can use an air fryer instead of your oven.
In fact, I’ve just gotten done testing out and using a SILENT awesome air fryer that you can gift to that gourmet foodie in your life!
Here’s the video sharing the air fryer!
I will tell you that the big basket on this air fryer is one of my favorite things about it as is the light to see in!
Gift the gourmet foodie this small appliance and I know they will love it! I sure do!
Solved: Gourmet Gift Ideas with an appliance and holiday salmon!
Now you know how to solve the non-ending tale of gifting to recipients that you want to share the gift food or small kitchen appliances with to rock their foodie world.

Make sure to print the green and red holiday salmon recipe and add it to their air fryer and card when you visit them or write to them (if you won’t be together!)
Remember, gourmet gifts are wonderful choices because they allow you to celebrate any season and any occasion such as birthdays, anniversaries, thank-yous, holidays, hostess gifts, and more.
