Grilled Salmon BLT

Grilled salmon is incredible by itself, but when it is paired with fresh avocado, tomatoes, and applewood smoked bacon there are really no words to describe this sandwich. As the season of salmon approaches cooks are seething for new and creative ideas to prepare salmon. This recipe offers the healthy dose of omega-3’s as well as the bursting flavors of fresh in season ingredients.

Fresh rosemary and garlic are the perfect match to the salmon, the bold flavors bounce off the richness of the fish. Sourdough bread that is toasted with a touch of olive oil will stand up to the creamy aioli that acts as a dressing and helps the salmon stay moist. There are a few steps to creating the grilled salmon BLT, but the effort is very rewarding. This recipe will make four open-faced sandwiches.
 

Wild versus farm raised Salmon
As tempting as it may be to purchase farm raised salmon; choosing wild caught salmon is a healthy and environment-friendly option. The cost of each is about the same; however, farm raised salmon can be filled with dyes and the fish itself are not hatched in the proper environment. Even frozen wild catch salmon is a better option; the fishermen will freeze the salmon within minutes of catching it; so the fresh factor and flavor is still present.
