Brandon’s Breakfast Eggs on Toast with Chicaoji

Thank you for providing such a lovely product over these years! Thank you for the information, I truly had no idea I could get my favorite sauce here in Everett! [Sno-Isle Food Co-op] Thank you for letting me know, I will check it out there next time!

I have been enjoying chicaoji for quite some time now… roughly 6-8 years or so now. I first found out about Chicaoji at a local market on Lopez Island some years back, and I believe it was you that sold it to me 🙂

Typically, I use chicaoji on my egg recipes or chicken recipes. My favorite breakfast to make for myself and my wife is as follows:

-1 piece of toast
-small layer of cream cheese
-a few cut cherry tomatoes
-sprinkle sunflower seeds
-various greens mix of lettuce
-2 eggs over easy/medium on top
-chicaoji sauce drizzled to liking

or

-1 piece of toast
-layer of lightly fried ham
-cheese (cheddar or pepperjack)
-2 eggs over easy/medium on top
-dollup of sour cream
-sliced avocado
-chicaoji sauce drizzled to liking

Perhaps you will try them and see what you think!

Chicaoji Shrimp Sandwich With Avocado On Baguette

Noel McKeehan’s Recipe page is loaded with good ideas. Among them you will find the Chicaoji Shrimp Sandwich. Noel includes nice photo montage to illustrate his recipe. Simple and effective.

Quoting from Noel’s blog below:

I eat these for breakfast during the part of the year – May to September – when fresh caught Oregon cocktail shrimp are available.  The frozen ones available at other times are invariably a disappointment.

This creation came into existence via a time honored personal channel.  “The Voice” spoke to me.  It said something like, “…damn that Chicaoji is good.  I’ll bet it would be great mixed with some Best Foods mayonnaise (Julia Child specified Best Foods mayonnaise as the accompaniment to go with the Dungeness crab in the menu for her request for her last meal) and mixed with some shrimp.  It happened I was eating a baguette when the voice spoke these words, so it was natural that I would decide to put the mix on a baguette.  The avocado came about because I can’t eat anything without an avocado being part of it.

Chicaoji Shrimp Sandwich Ingredients:

  • Chicaoji
  • “Best Food” Mayonnaise
  • Fresh Oregon Shrimp
  • Ripe Avocado
  • Baguette

Preparation:

Mix some Chicaoji in a bowl with some mayonnaise.  Add the shrimp and mix.  Split the baguette and spread the shrimp mix on the bread.  Add slices of avocado.  Put the top piece of bread in place.  Stand back and admire your handy work.

When eating it have a salad fork at the ready to replace shrimp and avocado that squirt out the sides, and have lots of napkins.  A Bloody Mary is the official alcoholic accompaniment if you desire to indulge in such a thing.  See my youtube video on that subject to assure that the Bloody Mary meets offficial McKeehan standards for that drink. Or you can click on the Bloody Mary tab in this recipes section. The movie is more entertaining.
