Smoked trout and egg sandwich

October 3, 2010

This is a simple sandwich but it’s really different than most sandwiches we see in the states. It was inspired by a great little shop in Williamsburg Brooklyn called Saltie. They make delicious, simple Mediterranean inspired sandwiches. This sandwich was inspired by one they call captain’s daughter with sardines and pickled egg. I made mine in Idaho with my own smoked trout, an 8 1/2 minute egg, olives, shallot, mayonnaise and chives on a mini baguette. I packed it for the long flight from Boise back to LaGuardia. It made the layover plenty more bearable.

They key players in this sandwich are:

–       Smoked fish (any kind, I used trout)

–       a boiled egg (here’s an explanation on how to make a good egg)

–       brined olives (almost any olive will do, but don’t use canned black pizza olives.)

–       chives

–       mayonnaise (or a generous drizzle of olive oil)

–       good bread (a nice bakery loaf)

It’s really a piece of cake sandwich and the flavors just go amazing together. I thought about putting some instructions here, but it’s a sandwich. Slice your bread, slather with mayo and pile on the ingredients, there’s only 4 of them! Make up a few of these sandwiches on a warm afternoon with a bottle of white wine and some good friends and you will be glad you did. Enjoy!
