Heh.....maybe I'm getting a little too cute for my own good...... The Missus has been bugging me to make some smoked salmon since She had the smoked salmon sandwich at Kitchen 4140.She's applied a bit more pressure since returning there and having an uneven meal...different bread, standard tomatoes, etc, etc, etc..... So on the way this evening I stopped by Nijiya Market and picked up some Cherry Blossom white bread, medium cut, next stop the Fruit Stand on Morena for some tomatoes, and finally a little comparison between Bay Park Fish and Seisel's to see who had better salmon...... on this day, the Scottish Salmon from Seisel's won out. The rest of the stuff we had at home.....
Seasoned with some fresh ground pepper, sea salt, and some smoked salt, 20 minutes in the stove top smoker (can't believe I've had the thing for over six years now!) and that's it...... took about forty minutes total, not bad for a week night.
The Missus is a closet mayo lover..... She keeps telling me how much She hates mayo.... but I guess a dill-caper mayonnaise is a different story, especially with salmon.
Chill to let the flavors meld before serving....
That honking piece of salmon is perhaps a bit too much for a single sandwich....but if you want to take even further over the top; perhaps a couple of slices of crisp bacon might do it???
But heck then you could call this a SS-BLAT??? Or even B.S. SALT???
Happy Monday everybody!
