Pan bagnat


Pan bagnat
Pan Bagnat is a traditional recipe from the Nice area. The name means "soaked bread", as it consists of a round bread roll that has been drenched with a mix of oil and vinegar then filled vegetables and fish. Years ago this was the snack that fisherman took with them on their boats, but this is a modernised version.

Remarks

The ingredients state hamburger-style rolls, but it is even better with a firmer kind of bread, such as special breads or baguettes (like in the photos).

You can replace the oil and vinegar mix with a simple vinaigrette dressing, made in advance.
