What are you waiting for? On your marks, set, cook!

You will need the following ingredients for the spread:


  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 15 g red onions, finely diced (put some diced onions aside for the decoration of the bread)
  • 50 g crème fraiche
  • 10 g raspberry vinegar
  • 100 g smoked trout
  • salt
  • Lemon zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Pinch of onion powder


For the dressing:

  • 20 g dried plums
  • 30 g agave syrup
  • 10 g raspberry vinegar
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 5 g grated ginger
  • Grapeseed oil


For the chicory:

  • 3 pieces of chicory, cut into thick slices and stick together with a toothpick
  • Brown sugar for caramelizing
  • MEDIHEMP organic hemp oil


For the decoration of the bread:


For the spread, pluck the trout into pieces. Mix with the finely diced onions, crème fraiche, raspberry vinegar, garlic, salt, lemon zest, juice of the ½ lemon and a pinch of onion powder. Put aside.

For the dressing, cut the dried plums into large pieces. Mix together with the agave syrup, the raspberry vinegar, the 2 cloves of garlic and the ginger with a hand blender. Then slowly add the grape seed oil little by little. It should have a thick, creamy consistency.

Now cut the chicory salads into thicker pieces and put the “roll” together with a toothpick. Put the brown sugar in a pan and caramelize the ends of the pieces on both sides over medium heat. Drizzle each piece of endive salad with the MEDIHEMP organic hemp oil in the pan before turning.

Cut the sourdough bread into thin slices and toast in the oven or in a pan. Now spread the trout spread you set aside on the toasted sourdough bread. Place the caramelized endive salad on top and carefully remove the toothpicks. Spread the dressing over it and decorate with the onions, spring onions, chilli and the MEDIHEMP organic hemp seeds that were set aside.

Finally, drizzle a few drops of MEDIHEMP organic hemp oil over each bread.
