Spicy Wild Salmon Sandwich
From Salmon, Desserts and Friends
To keep sandwiches from becoming dreaded deck food throughout the long summer salmon season, I came up with this flavorful spicy wild salmon sandwich from my husband’s love of his salmon hot and sweet.
Ingredients2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 (5-ounce) wild salmon fillets, skin and pin bones removed
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons jalapeños, canned or
½ cup mayonnaise
4 Kaiser rolls or French bread, split and toasted
crisp lettuce leaves
DirectionsIn a small bowl, stir together jalapeños and mayonnaise. Spread on cut sides of rolls.
On a plate, stir the brown sugar, chili powder and cumin. Press tops of salmon fillets into spice mixture.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add oil, heat until hot. Add salmon, spice side down, cook 2-3 minutes or until browned. Turn salmon and cook another 3-4 minutes or until salmon begins to flake. Place salmon on bottom half of roll, top with lettuce and sliced tomatoes. Cover with top half.
