The Ultimate Tuna Sandwich

Thoughts and prayers go out to all the folks affected by hurricane Sandy this week. I have to say we were lucky as it skipped by Richmond with basically rain and a little wind. As you may recall, I was in New York a couple if weeks ago and I was literally walking the neighborhoods that are now under water!

While in New York I had been wanting to get by BKLYN Larder for some time and this trip was it. So what did I find? Absolutely, hands down, the best tuna fish sandwich I have ever had! What did I learn? Anchovies seem to be the hot ingredient right now, as I was seeing it everywhere and that could not make me happier!

Ingredients: (For two Sandwiches)
  • 1 can of good quality tuna in oil
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 1 hard boiled egg, sliced
  • Mayonnaise 
  • 2-4 anchovy filets 
  • Crusty bread
Simply mix the first four ingredients, flaking the tuna but leaving it in bigger chunks. Spread mayonnaise on both sides of the bread. Scoop tuna generously on 1 half, layer with egg slices and top with 1 or 2 anchovy filets.

The capers in the tuna matched with the additional saltiness of the anchovy and the creamy mayonnaise is a sandwich I will regularly make at home and order every time I am stopping into BKLYN Larder! I might not have nailed it exactly, but this is my take on The Ultimate Tuna Sandwich!

Hope you are also a fan of anchovies because later in the week I am making an anchovy dressing for an organic kale salad that you won't want to miss.

E.A.T. local E.A.T. well
