Crispy Salmon BLT

Our wedding is only a month away! I cannot believe how quickly everything has come together. We have been working on the finishing touches and the weather has not cooperated with my projects. It has been non stop rain. I’m hoping this means it will be nice and dry by the time the wedding day is here.

These Salmon BLTs are perfect for adding a little freshness during this dreary weather. Lemon aioli, spicy pepper bacon, juicy tomato, and fresh cut lettuce all do their part to liven up my favorite salmon.

You can use Texas toast or a lettuce wrap for these. We like the Publix onion rolls. They soak up all the aioli in the best way.

Ingredients

Green leafy lettuce

Tomato

Thick cut bacon (we like pepper crusted bacon)

1/4 cup of mayonnaise

Juice from 1 lettuce

Tsp black pepper

1 small white onion sliced

Bread

Fresh salmon filets

2 tbsp of coconut oil or olive oil

Steak seasoning or a blend of garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, pepper

1/2 tsp dill

Directions

Rub the filets with oil and season liberally

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Fry each side in a cast iron skillet

Bake for 10 minutes or until cooked through

Fry a few pieces of bacon and use the excess fat to sauté the sliced onion

Mix mayo, lemon and pepper

Slather on both pieces of bread

Add tomato slices and lettuce

Add the salmon

Top with the onions and bacon

Now there is nothing left, but to enjoy multiple times a week!

Sometimes you just need to smash some avocado. In celebration of my new (improved) website I wanted to share something delicious. Something cheesy, covered in bacon, and spiced up with Wickles relish. This is not a sponsored post. I just LOVE Wickles. When I was shopping today I came across the spicy relish and knew I wanted to make something ASAP. This is what appeared shortly thereafter.

How to make it:

    Butter 4 pieces of sourdough bread, mine is from publix bakery. Heat your frying pan to over a medium flame and add the bread 2 pieces at a time. Top bread with havarti and leave in pan until the cheese starts to melt. Set bread to the side to cool. Cut your avocado in half and scoop onto 2 pieces of bread. I used a fork to smash the avocado lightly. Add mayo, salt, and pepper to your liking. I used about a tsp of mayo and liberally seasoned. Top with tomatoes, bacon, and about a tsp of the relish.
