Smoked salmon, avocado and mango sandwich — probably one of my favorite sandwiches ever construed! Thanks Chef Tom Colicchio for this little gem, it’s delicious!
1 small unripe mango, peeled and julienned
juice from 1/2 lime
bread – he recommends Pulman white bread, I used country flat bread
1 ripe avocado
drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil — I used meyer lemon olive oil
fresh ground black pepper
8 oz smoked salmon, thinly sliced
12-15 basil leaves
Toss mango in lime juice and season with salt, lightly toast the bread.
Place avocado on 4 slices of bread and gently mash and spread. Drizzle avocado with olive oil and season with pepper. Top with mango, smoked salmon an basil. Add the top slices, cut and serve.
