We just returned from seeing the movie Noah, and doing our weekly grocery shopping. The movie was very well done, definitely beautiful, strange and shocking all at once. I can’t say I recommend the film, but I will say there was never a dull moment in the 2+ hours while I was watching it. Seen any good/weird movies lately?

Here’s a delicious, easy appetizer or light meal that goes together in minutes and is absolutely fantastic with a glass of sauvignon blanc.

1 whole, fresh baguette

8 oz. montrachet goat cheese

2 heaping Tablespoons sweet pickle relish

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 to 2 Tablespoons fresh or dry dill

1 (3.9 oz) tin smoked trout (we like Trader Joe’s)

spicy cocktail sauce

lemon wedges

olive oil

Toast baguette just until warm and a bit crusty. Cut into thick slices.

Mix the montrachet with the pickle relish and lemon zest and form it into a cheese ball. Roll it in the dill to coat the outside. Place the cheese ball on a plate. Slice a lemon into small wedges and place them around the cheese ball.

Open the tin of smoked trout. Transfer to a little bowl.

Open a jar of your favorite spicy cocktail sauce or make some by combining ketchup, horseradish and hot pepper jelly (to taste.)

To serve: Spread slices of baguette with the montrachet. Top with a little smoked trout, a small spoonful of cocktail sauce, a drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of fresh lemon.

Enjoy!

    I have never seen the Montrachet goat cheese here in West Virginia. Would regular goat cheese work?

    My type of food. I wish I could bring my family around to the good side of food.

      Hi Ruth 🙂 Yes, any goat cheese will work for this… or, cream cheese, in a pinch! Thanks for visiting! xoxo ~M
