Blackened salmon sandwich

Blackened salmon sandwich

  • 4 slices thick-cut sourdough bread
  • 12 ounces Salmon, cut into 2″ chunks
  • One avocado peeled, seeded and sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon light mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons brown mustard
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup green leaf lettuce
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • One teaspoon each of paprika, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, and cayenne papper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
  • One half teaspoon high quality balsamic vinegar



Drizzle salmon chunks with olive oil. Combine flour, spices, salt and pepper to create blackening spice. Dredge all sides of salmon chunks in spice mixture.

Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add salmon chunks and cook until salmon is to your preferred level of doneness. You will need to turn salmon chunks occasionally to get the beautiful color on both sides

Meanwhile, lay bread on platter. Spread mayonnaise, mustard and hot sauce onto each slice of bread.

Layer each slice of bread with lettuce, tomato, red onion and avocado. Top bread with salmon chunks, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar
