Prosciutto, Blue Cheese and Candied Pecan Panini


I know what you're thinking, “what kind of fool thinks of putting candied nuts on a sandwich?” A fool who is much brighter than myself.

Chef Adrien at Notturno Paninoteca is the genius behind this flavor-packed and easy to make sandwich. If you are in Gastown and have the chance, pop in to see him and owner Scott McTavish and try out one (or more!) of their amazing paninis. If you're not lucky enough to live nearby, here's my version of their Blu Fico Panino.

This sandwich is loaded with flavor. Sweet fig and balsamic jam, salty black olive aioli, pungent blue cheese, and nutty candied pecans. I've added prosciutto, which isn't on the original. But who doesn't love prosciutto, right? All of this goodness is sandwiched inside a fresh baguette.
