The TLT (Smoked Trout, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich)
For some blasphemers, this sandwich may be an improvement on the classic BLT.

Ingredients:
8 broad, 1/2-inch-thick slices of good bread (slices cut from a round sourdough loaf work beautifully)
1 pound smoked trout
1/4 cup mayonnaise (more, if desired)
12 medium-thick slices ripe, red tomato
leafy green lettuce

Directions:
Divide ingredients into four sandwiches. Season with freshly ground pepper.

For some blasphemers, this sandwich may be an improvement on the classic BLT: the trout plays the same salty-smoky role as bacon, but does it with more interesting flavor and texture. As with a regular BLT, make sure you've got the best bread, the best lettuce, the best tomatoes and the best mayonnaise you can find! Good potato chips on the side can't hurt! Makes 4 sandwiches
