Arepas with salmon y Aguacate

If I had a restaurant or cafe, I would be sure to have arepas with a large list of different toppings on the menu. Salmon with avocado would definitely be on that list! What a delicious combination.

For this recipe I made small arepas to serve as an appetizer and I really enjoyed them.

Buen provecho!
