Salmon BLT's

What an extraordinary take an a classic BLT!  I loved incorporating my newfound love of salmon into one of our favorite weeknight meals!  If I hadn't been so full after eating mine, I totally would've gone for a second helping.  Delish!  (Now, I usually will cook the whole package of bacon.  Just refrigerate whatever leftovers you have--they make great bacon bits when chopped up, just waiting to be added to your salad!)

Salmon BLT's
Inspired by Get-Togethers with Gooseberry Patch

1 package of bacon
4 pieces of salmon
pieces of romaine lettuce
8 slices of tomato
8 slices of red onion
hamburger buns

Chipotle Mayonnaise
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 tsp. canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
1 tsp. adobo sauce from canned chipotle
Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Cook bacon until slightly crispy; transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.

Drizzle some olive oil in a grill pan; cook salmon over medium heat until opaque, turning once to cook the other side.  Season with salt and pepper.

To assemble:  spread chipotle mayonnaise over the inside of the top bun.  Place salmon on the bottom half of the bun, and layer bacon, lettuce, tomato, and red onion.


  1. Did you buy pre-cooked or smoked salmon, or did you grill/broil it yourself beforehand. This looks delicious!

  2. Lisa, I bought frozen salmon, then I cooked it in a grill pan on my stove.
