Author Notes: Our farmers market sells a wonderful local smoked trout. I bought a brown sugar smoked fillet yesterday as well as some big, beautiful heirloom tomatoes. I had created the crème fraiche/pepper jelly combo earlier to use in my salmon cake recipe. I made that again, added some greens, and liked the result. Adding crispy bacon gave the sandwich a good crunch. It is also good without bacon if you prefer. I have also tried cutting the tomato into chunks and mixing with the crème fraiche, and adding a dab of harissa for an extra kick (see second photo). That is great too. Or, you can substitute harissa for the pepper jelly but add it more sparingly to the crème fraiche. Note; if you don’t have a good local smoked trout, a smoke salmon fillet or lox will also work nicely.JoanG

  • 4 ounces fillet of smoked trout , skin removed
  • 2 whole wheat hamburger buns or 4 slices of bread, or 2 English muffins

Smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato and rosemary sourdough bread. I actually posted it as an entry :)

The rosemay sourdough really makes the sandwich

Your recipe reminded me of a breakfast sandwich I was hooked on for a while. I am looking forward of trying out your recipe.

Thank you for reminding me of my sandwich :)

What a sandwich! Looks lovely~can't wait to try it, though I've got red pepper jelly. With that list of ingredients, you can't go wrong!

Red pepper jelly should work well too. Let me know how it turns out!
