smoked fish and avocado brunch croissant



Straight-forward and just plain delicious, my Smoked Fish and Avocado Brunch Croissant is perfect for a quick Sunday morning breakfast in bed.

It’s got a little arugula salad and soft-cooked egg “side”, so it’s the real-deal when it comes to a relaxing weekend morning repast.

Mashing a ripe avocado with some finely minced shallot makes a tasty bed for any smoked fish that you especially like.  As far as I’m concerned, using a croissant just ups the yum factor one more notch.  I like to lightly toast my croissants before filling, but that’s just a matter of preference.


INGREDIENTS:  (2 Servings)

  • 2 large croissants
  • 1 Haas avocado, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 tsp. shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 6 oz. smoked fish (trout, salmon, sea bass)
  • 2 cups arugula or watercress
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 soft-cooked eggs (4-5 minutes in simmering water)



  • Toast croissant if desired
  • In a small bowl, mash avocado, add shallots, lemon juice and season to taste with kosher salt and pepper
  • Place arugula in medium bowl, add olive oil, vinegar and season to taste with kosher salt and pepper, and toss to coat
  • Assemble the sandwich by placing avocado on bottom of croissant, layer on smoked fish and replace top.
  • On individual plates, place one croissant, 1/2 of the dressed greens and one egg, cut in half on top of green.
  • ENJOY!
