New diet recipe: Salmon Pan Bagnat.

(For all the recipes I've posted in 2016, click the "recipes2016" label at the bottom of this entry; or just "recipes" for all the writing I've ever done on the subject.)

New diet recipe! This is a "pan bagnat," a specific type of sandwich that originally became famous in Nice, France, in which a helping of salad nicoise is placed inside a hollowed-out roll and sat aside for awhile to soak in the juices. In my case I substituted salmon for tuna, and left out the hardboiled egg. 250 calories for each sandwich you're seeing!

Serves 4

.3 cup chopped red onion
2 tbsp chopped olives
1 tbsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt and pepper
6 oz (1 can) tuna or salmon
1 hardboiled egg, chopped
.25 cup sliced basil
2 tsp olive oil
1 large baguette
1 garlic clove, cut in half
1 cup sliced tomato

Combine first seven ingredients; combine basil and oil in separate bowl. Cut baguette in half, then scoop out insides. Rub cut garlic over cut sides of bread then discard. Drizzle basil mixture over insides of bread, then spoon in tuna mixture. Add tomato slices. Wrap finished sandwich in saran wrap and let sit for at least a half-hour.
