Grilled Salmon Sandwich with Dill Sauce


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.

2 sandwiches


  • 4 slices bacon

  • 1 (1 pound) fillet salmon, cut into 2 portions

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • cup mayonnaise

  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed

  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

  • 4 slices country-style bread, toasted

  • 4 slices tomato

  • 2 green leaf lettuce leaves


  1. 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.

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

  3. 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.

  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.
