Fishwife “Trout-acado” sandwich

A twist on the famous Joe & the Juice version, try this Trout-acado sandwich for your next lunch!

We’ve all heard of the “Tunacado” from Joe & Juice but have you heard of a TROUT-cado?! My inspiration for this sandwich comes from the “Tunacado” and I’m so excited for you to try it. The main ingredient here is the Fishwife Rainbow Trout Jerky Gems. You’re going to combine the trout with dijon mustard, mayo, red onion, capers, and lemon juice. These are some of my fave ingredients you find in the Joe & Juice version so I knew had to incorporate them into mine. For the full Troutcado effect, you’re going to whip your own homemade pesto and generously apply it to the bread of your choice. In this case, I used a flatbread. You’ll also slice up an avocado for this delish trout sandy! You may be wondering why I used trout versus a tuna, and let me tell you. It’s a bit more fatty (aka, deliciousness!), and it does have more Vitamin A and Vitamin D, which is just an added bonus to have in your lunch!! You gotta try it, this sandwich is truly addicting.
