EoMEoTE #11: Smoked Trout Salad with Soft-Set Egg

In accordance with this month's theme of 70s lyrics...

Can you see the trout Fernando?
I remember long ago when trout was smoked as well as this
There was salad too Fernando
An orb of warming yolk just like a gently rising sun
I can see the toast now bare
But soon to bathe in sticky egg of fun.

I used the smoked trout I picked up from last week's Pyrmont Growers' Market. The flesh was firm, perfectly flaky and had a delightfully earthy genuine smoked flavour. The organic egg was soft soft boiled, the runny yolk mopped up with triangles of toasted light rye.

Check out all the End of Month Eggs on Toast Extravaganzas in the wrap-up coming soon to Dispensing Happiness.

    Hi AG,

    Can I have some of that yolk for breakfast? It looks so perfectly cooked. =P

    Hi Stephanie - You can never hear enough ABBA! And Fernando has always been one of my favourites.

    Hi Big BoK - It was! It made a very tasty brunch.

    Hi Chick Pea - lol. I love sunny runny eggs.

    Hi Reid - I was actually stressed that I had underboiled my egg. I had to scoop it out of the shell with a spoon! It was perfectly runny though. Mmm...

    Hi boo_licious - I love Abba. Have you seen the Aussie movie Muriel's Wedding with Toni Collette? It's hilarious.

    Fernando is my father's name, so this song is dear to our hearts. He would love that dish too!

    Hi Sarah Lou - I'm glad you liked my take on the song. And smoked trout is definitely a winner. Fernando has a certain wistfulness about it.

    Mmm...that looks absolutely fab, especially the runny sunny yolk. That's my favorite Corningware pattern too, the Morning Blue, if I remember correctly. :)

    Hi Julia - I have to confess it's daggy ol' Corelle! But I'm sure it'll be pleased to know it carried off an impersonation of Corningware! =)

    A-BBA! A-BBA! A-BBA! Abba rocks and I'm so thrilled that you found a song to use for EoMEoTE - I was trying but when inspiration struck it just didn't strike in a Scadanavian direction...! Great post & thanks for joining in!

    Hi Jeanne - Abba does indeed rock, and I've always had a soft spot for Fernando!
