Salmon is one of my favorite varieties of fish. You can prepare salmon in so many ways and the fish will always taste amazing. And that's just the case with this Salmon BLT Sandwich, a twist on the classic BLT. This is a delicious way to serve a healthy portion of salmon as a sandwich with the added treat of a little bacon, fresh tomato and spinach.
Another surprise to this sandwich is the simple caper and dill dressing. If you aren't familiar with capers, or have never cooked with them, they are a great item to keep on hand. You only need a single teaspoon for this recipe and they add a bright zing of flavor to the dressing. I'm sure we will be using this same dressing with many others dishes in the future. Enjoy!!
1/2 tsp Dried Dill
1 tsp Capers, very finely chopped
1/4 cup Light Mayonnaise
1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper
1 lb Salmon Fillets, skinless, cut into 4 portions
Salt and Pepper
8 slices Bacon
1 large Tomato, sliced
1 cup Fresh Spinach, washed and patted dry
Sliced Sourdough Bread, toasted
In a small bowl combine the dill, capers, mayo and pepper. Stir to combine and chill until ready to serve.
Place the salmon on a serving platter and lightly season both sides with salt and ground black pepper. Wrap each salmon fillet with 2 slices of bacon, wrapping the bacon around, then overlap with the second slice, until the salmon is wrapped snug with the bacon. Repeat with the remaining pieces of salmon.
Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat until hot. Place the salmon in the pan and cook for about 4 - 5 minutes until the bacon is browned, then turn the salmon over and cook 4 minutes longer.
Serve the cooked salmon on toasted sourdough bread, with sliced tomatoes, fresh spinach and a dollop of the caper and dill dressing.
