Salmorejo with Gulf Coast Caviar

Gazpacho’s chilled tomato soup cousin, Salmorejo, transforms into a luxuriously creamy soup with the addition of soaked fresh bread crumbs. Spiking the soup with Sarasota’s own Gulf Coast Caviar takes this soup to the next level.

1. Place tomatoes, garlic, and salt in a powerful blender and blend until smooth. Add bread and let soak for 5 minutes.

2. Add clam juice and blend until smooth. (Add additional clam juice if soup is having trouble blending.) With blender running, slowly add oil and blend until thick. Season with additional salt, if necessary, and pepper.

3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve topped with eggs and caviar.

NOTE: You can purchase Gulf Coast Caviar at Simon’s Coffee House.
