[The above is a vast understatement]
As I walked to the gym for Cycle this morning, just the smells, the warmth, the green. Gosh I was happy! I did not like going in a dark room for the class, but it was a great workout and worth the brief dip into the darkness.
Back at home I snacked on a few dried plums and then made lunch at 12:30.
Do you love tuna salad?
Do you like smoked sardines?
Then you MUST try smoked trout!!
I picked up a tin at Trader Joe’s on our last visit because I love their smoked sardines and herring so much. This may have topped all of the other tinned fish!! It had the lightness of tuna (without the mercury) and the lovely smoked flavor of pulled pork. In fact, I bet I could turn this into a pulled pork sandwich pretty easily with some BBQ sauce. The smoked flavor was greater than the fishy flavor, so it barely felt like I was eating a fish.
I prepared the salad simply with 2 tsp mustard, 1 tsp mayonnaise, 3 pinches Old Bay, a pinch of salt and pepper.
Served on saltines! I used to have tuna salad on saltines all the time for lunch when I was in high school.
I had a celery stalk for extra dipping and a sliced plum on the side
Great filling lunch! It’s too bad I only bought one tin as an experiment. Need more trout!
