Best thing about Brooklyn? Hands down our grandson, and his equally amazing parents. Next, the views from the Brooklyn Bridge. Close third, 1 Hotel’s avocado toast.

What tops a great dinner? A surprisingly delicious breakfast.

1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is an incredible waterfront oasis.

The nighttime panorama from their rooftop bar is worth the stay, as is the morning fare at the Osprey.

After one bite and I knew had to recreate their avocado toast with smoked salmon and roe. Honestly, I could eat this all day. The fresh tastes and textures are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or supper.  And it all comes together in a New York Minute!

The ingredients are key.

Start with two thick slices of good crusty bread.

A perfectly ripe avocado. 

Quality smoked salmon, thinly sliced. 

Trout or salmon roe from the fishmonger’s refrigerator case, never from the shelf. 

Pickled red onions that are a cinch to make.

And sprigs of fresh dill.

Cut the bread in half and toast. 

Meanwhile mash the avocado with a pinch of kosher salt. 

Spoon a generous amount of avocado onto the toast. 

Drape with pieces of smoked salmon. 

Scatter a bit of pickled onion. 

Top with a dollop of roe. 

Finish with a few small sprigs of dill.

You can see why I packed this one in my bag and brought it home!
