This was delicious. I don't like uncooked onions so I blanched them let them cool and mixed them into the avocado and mayo. Used regular lettuce and a 12 grain high fiber whole wheat bread. A crusty role probably would hold up better because it was very messy, but it didn't matter because it tasted so good. My husband really enjoyed it, too. He thought if was very flavorful.
Blackened Salmon Sandwich
Blackened salmon is great in a sandwich with a spread of mashed avocado and low-fat mayonnaise plus peppery arugula leaves, cool tomato slices and zesty red onion. We grill our Cajun-style salmon so there is no need for any added cooking oil. Catfish makes an excellent stand-in for the salmon but you'll want to use a grill basket if you have one to keep the fish from breaking apart.

This is a great, quick after work meal. Really simple but a great combination of flavors.

This is a tasty and easy recipe. I think you could use any rub you like and it would turn out great. My husband doesn't like cajun seasoning on fish as he think it makes it taste more fishy. But I would still use a spicy rub. Also added garlic and cilantro to the avocado sauce. Used baby lettuce instead o arugula since I don't like arugula. Perfect week night meal with some veggies on the side. I used whole wheat burger buns from Trader Joes and they were perfect with it.

YUMMY. I made this for my husband, mother, and father, and we all loved it. I get bored of cooking salmon the same way, so I tried this method, and it was a success! Will make many times again!
