Blackened Salmon Sandwich

April/May 2006, EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (99 votes)

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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Wonderful recipe!! This is very easy to make and a great light sandwich for the summer. Probably will never make salmon any other way again. "

This was absolutely delicious and a nice change from regular grilled or broiled salmon. The only change we made was using regular mayo instead of reduced-fat but I seriously doubt that that made that big of a difference in taste.

This was great! The only change I made was using romaine lettuce instead of the aragula since I'm not much a fan. My dad added hot sauce to the avacodo spread, commenting that it could use "more of a kick", but it's versatile enough to suit everyone's needs. Definately a keeper! :)

Excellent. One of my favorite salmon recipes. I made this several times and recommend this one as a keeper. Sometimes I substitute baby spinach for the arugula. A great weeknight meal or casual get together with friends.

This is amazing...and you can do it inside on a cast iron grill pan if you want. I'm not crazy about salmon, but my partner loves it...I actually made this for her, but I liked it just as much! Beware, though - it is MESSY to eat.

Great for a weekend company meal and very filling. If using a grill pan, toast the whole wheat rolls first and the grill pan is still clean to do the salmon.
