Everyone has heard of a BLT….bacon, lettuce, tomato. Or, how about a BLTA….A, as in avocado. Well, how’s about a SBATS…..salmon, bacon, avocado, tomato, spinach. I mixed a wee bit of lemon juice in with my mayo. That gave it a nice little tang. It is one delicious sandwich…maybe even my favorite samich!! But it sure is messy. You can use turkey bacon if you want a healthier sandwich, but really? I used an apple wood smoked bacon and that combination of smoky bacon with salmon….well, OMG. I was saying M-m-mmmm the whole time I was eating it. It would have been even better with a nice glass of Riesling or Pinot Grigio. But since it’s only Monday and it’s a work night, I refrained. Damn.
Well, go get yourself a nice piece of fresh salmon and get busy! Seriously…MAKE THIS! Yum-m-m-m-mmmm. Oh! napkins….you’ll need em.
SBATS (Salmon, bacon, avocado, tomato, spinach) Sandwich
approx. 8 oz cooked fresh salmon (per sandwich)
fresh spinach leaves
crispy slices of bacon
mayo mixed with a squirt of fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper
toasted bread (I recommend sourdough or something that will hold up to a lot of messiness)
Toast your bread, spread with lemon mayo. Start constructing your sandwich, starting with the spinach leaves. (this will prevent juices from going to the bottom and getting your bread all soggy and mushy) Take a big bite, say YUM (with a mouthful of food) and gobble it up. Have lots of napkins handy….or wear a bib. 🙂
