Salmon Toast

Salmon toast is my happy place. We pickled radishes, cucumbers, and onions last week I used these pickled radishes on my salmon toast today and they were amazing.


Thick whole grain bread slices (toasted)
Smoked salmon (thiny sliced)
Creme Fraiche
Pickled radishes (Recipe below)
Soft boiled egg slices
Avocado slices

1. Fill up a medium pot with water and let the water come to a light boil. Reduce the heat and let the water reduce to a rapid simmer. Gently lower the eggs into the water, one at a time. Cook the eggs for 5 to 7 minutes: For 1 to 2 eggs, cook 7 minutes for a barely-set yolk. Remove from water and set on counter to cool.

2. Toast (1) 1" thick piece of whole grain toast and spread creme fraiche on one side. 

3. Layer pieces of smoked salmon on top of the creme fraiche, followed by pieces of avocado, slices of egg, pickled radish slices, capers, and finally sprinkle with a little dill. For my pickled radish recipe see below!
