Open-Faced Salmon BLTs

Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 10 minutes

Fresh salmon and a tangy dill spread dress up the conventional BLT. You'll need a knife and fork to handle this hearty sandwich. To save time, toast the bread slices while the fish cooks.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

Ingredients

  • 8 slices precooked hickory-smoked bacon (such as Jimmy Dean)
  • 2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh dill
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices diagonally cut French bread, toasted
  • 4 green leaf lettuce leaves
  • 4 slices tomato, cut in half

Preparation

1. Preheat broiler.

2. Microwave bacon slices according to package directions; set aside.

3. While bacon cooks, sprinkle fish with 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place fish, skin sides down, on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 10 to 13 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove skin from fish, and cut fish into chunks.

4. While fish cooks, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Spread 1 tablespoon dill mayonnaise on each French bread slice; top with 1 lettuce leaf, 2 tomato halves, 2 slices bacon, and one-fourth of salmon chunks. Drizzle remaining dill mayonnaise evenly over each sandwich.

Serve with: Tomato and Cucumber Salad
