    Serves: 2 

    • 4 rashers streaky bacon
    • 1 (450g) fillet salmon, cut into 2 portions
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 5 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 1 teaspoon dried dill
    • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
    • 4 slices good, crusty bread, toasted
    • 4 slices tomato
    • 2 lettuce leaves

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:23min 

    1. Cook the bacon in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a kitchen paper-lined plate.
    2. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Evenly coat the salmon with the olive oil.
    3. Cook the salmon on the preheated barbecue with the skin side down for about 5 minutes before flipping and cooking on the other side until the skin can easily be lifted off the flesh, about 5 minutes more. Flip the salmon once more and continue cooking until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, another 2 to 3 minutes.
    4. Whisk the mayonnaise, dill and lemon zest together in a small bowl; divide between 2 of the toasted bread slices. Top each with 1 portion of cooked salmon, 2 tomato slices, 2 bacon slices, 1 lettuce leaf and a remaining slice of toasted bread.

    I made this last weekend during the heatwave!! Served this in crusty baps and squeezed some more lemon over the salmon once it was cooked. Very nice change from burgers  -  08 May 2011


    I wish I'd thought of this myself - so simple and fresh. It was wonderful!  -  08 May 2011


    Delish! I thought the mayo sauce was a tad on the bland side the original way so I modified it to my liking, which is great about recipies! I used the same amount of mayo, 1 tsp of dill, 1/2 tsp lemon pepper, tad bit more cracked black pepper, salt, and it was PERFECT!!!!! I think the lemon pepper was key. Just a few shakes goes a long way. Turkey bacon for a little healther fat, and whole wheat buns, added sauce to fish and to buns.... THANK YOU!! =)  -  29 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
