Wild Alaskan Salmon BLT July 25, 2012

Jamie says: I’ve been waiting for this time since last year… it’s Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon time at Publix! It’s at season’s peak!

I picked up a nice, red filet and got to work in the kitchen. I was inspired by the Salmon BLT recipe in the little trifold on the seafood section counter at Publix…  so I made my own Wild Alaskan Salmon BLT.

The salmon tasted so fresh and nothing like frozen salmon. I liked how the thick bread from the farmers’ market held the mayo and all the fillings. The bacon added a nice crunch, too.

Made with wild Alaskan salmon

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 lb Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon (Publix)
  • 2  slices bacon (Oscar Mayer Center Cut Original)
  • 2 slices whole wheat loaf (Vine, Gainsville Wednesday farmers’ market)
  • 1 slice onion
  • 1/2 tomato (vine-ripened)
  • 3 leaves fresh basil
  • 2 Tbsp reduced fat mayo with olive oil (Kraft)
  • 1/4 cup washed mixed baby greens (Organic Girl Super Greens- red & green swis chard, tat soi, arugula, and spinach)

Directions:

  1. Preheat a saute pan on medium heat. Place salmon on pan and cover with a lid. Cook about 4 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 4 minutes or until cooked throughout.
  2. Place bacon on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 2 minutes. Toast bread in toaster.
  3. Chop onion and slice tomato. Spread mayo on one slice of bread and top with chopped onion.
  4. Assemble sandwich: On other slice of bread, add baby greens followed by tomato, basil, salmon, bacon, and bread slice with mayo and onion. Enjoy!

Serves: 1

  • Nutrition note: Salmon is a great source of omega-3s and vitamin D, two nutrients that are difficult to come by in food. So enjoy!
