Seared Salmon Sandwich

One of my favorite fish to eat is salmon

I love it grilled, broiled, smoked and even raw as sushi

One of my favorite ways to eat salmon is seared and on a sandwich!

Lets start by making a remoulade sauce to go on our sandwich

Remoulade is a French mayonnaise based sauce or condiment and here is our take on one that we love to serve with this dish

We will need 1 cup of mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon of dill (fresh or dry), 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne and 1/2 teaspoon of Sriracha sauce

Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together

Place in the refrigerator to chill until being used

Now it’s time to work on the salmon

We have around a 1 1/2 pound filet of salmon

I like to feel along the center line of the fish for pin bones

Remove any that you find

We are trimming off the belly fat and the tail section (cook these up for your favorite pet)

I’m going to cut 4 even portions from this and save what’s left for another day

Place these in a sheet pan

We sprinkled these with a dry rub

Preheat your oven to 350 F

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in an oven proof pan over medium high heat

Once the pan is starting to lightly smoke, lay in your salmon filets

Sprinkle the back of the fish with a little more rub

Sear for 4 minutes

Gently flip the salmon

Place in the oven and cook another 4-6 minutes or until a knife easily pierces the thickest part of the fish

Remove and allow to rest for several minutes

While the salmon rests let’s work on toppings as well as the rolls

We will need 1 red onion, some lettuce and some tomatoes

Peel and slice the onion very thinly, cut the lettuce into serving sizes and slice up the tomatoes

Time for some roll maintenance!

We are using 4 ciabatta rolls

Slice them open, spread some butter on them and lightly toast in a pan

Now it’s time for assembly

For demonstration purposes we will do one

I’m confident you will do the rest!

Let’s start with a nicely toasted ciabatta roll

Spread some remoulade on the top and bottom

Next is some lettuce on the bottom
