This was awesome! I drizzled bread with a bit of olive oil before toasting. Delicious!

This sounds delicious! I am a huge fan of tinned sardines, and I'm trying to get the SO into it as well, for some healthy protein. I'll give this a try on him. Thanks for the recipe!

Nice! Smoked trout is a good intro to the tinned-fish world :) Hope you and the SO like this!

Alexandra, thank you! I made this last night. What a nice combination of flavors. It was so elegant. I would make this for a party for sure!

This was so delicious and quick to bring together. Easy to transport too. My daughter is visiting and staying in a hotel down the street. I packed it up and we sat in their oh so comfortable lobby and ate these with fresh fruits and drank champagne. So delightful. I did use both types of smoked fish, but I have to say the tinned Trader Joe's was every bit as good as the vacuum packed whole fillet and a smidgen of the price.

I'm so happy to hear this, Susan! And your dinner sounds so lovely — champagne, toast, fruit ... what more do you need? Great to know about the TJ's trout vs. the other.

I was at Trader Joe's and grabbed 3 cans. Then I stopped in at Zupans (local Shi Shi store) for fruit and saw their vacuum packed smoked trout. I had to grab it, but now I'm not sure which to use for dinner tonight. Sigh. The 1/2 lb weight threw me off. Did the original recipe use vacuum packaged trout?
Hi Susan! I'll make a note in the recipe. I use two of those Trader Joe's tins (each can says: net weight = 3.9 oz cans | dr weight 2.7 oz). Sorry for the confusion!

Thank you Alexandra. We're going to use both types of trout. 1/2 vacuum packed and one can. It will be fun to try them both.

I love fresh trout but have never tried canned smoked trout. These little toasts look great! I'll look for the cans next time I'm at Trader Joe's.
Thanks, Ileana! I have to stock up at TJ's every time I am there because I can't get there as often as I like. They are so nice to have on hand. Hope you are well!
