I made this sandwich once, and have been hooked ever since! Once you get a rhythm, this is a quick and easy dinner. And tastes great hot or cold.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Evenly coat the salmon with the olive oil.

  • Cook the salmon on the preheated grill 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.

  • 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.

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!! =) Read More

This wasn't bad but wasn't anything special either. With all of the recipes available I don't see myself making this again. Plus it was very messy and was actually quite annoying to have it dripping all over my hands and arms. The only time that is okay with me is if the taste is a 5star. Read More

10 star recipe! This was absolutely fantastic. I don't think I've ever had salmon and bacon together and wow what a perfect pair. The dill sauce was a perfect compliment. Definitely will be making this again. Thanks!:) Read More

This was an excellent recipe. I made one small change - I applied the sauce to the salmon BEFORE grilling and also used it as suggested on the sandwich itself. Yum! Read More

Awesome sandwich! I took the advice of others and used 1/2 tsp lemon pepper rather than the lemon zest. Also added more pepper to the mayo mixture and put some salt and pepper on the salmon too. Put a bit of the mayo on the fish when I grilled it and it just grilled up beautifully! Delicious! Read More

I made this sandwich and used a toasted ciabatta roll (which made the sandwich perfect) seasoned fish with blacken seasoning. The mayo sauce was good but needed tweeking. Top with lettuce garden fresh tomato and red onion.. one delicious sandwich Read More

Awesome! I did make a few changes to get it a little healthier. I used no-fat mayo and put turkey bacon on it rather than regular bacon. This I prepared by tossing it in the oven rather than in a skillet. For more dill flavor I put chunks of pickle in the sauce as well. Great recipe!! Read More

Great crunch and saltiness with the bacon. This was a winner and we'll definitely make it again. The sauce was great but I did add some cracked pepper and a little more lemon zest than it called for. Read More
