Salmon. Delicious, moist, rich and found in gigantic portions if purchased at Costco! Ever struggle with what to do with all of your leftover salmon? Today, I’m sharing my delicious Salmon BLT Burger with a delicious sauce that is the best way to use up your leftovers and serve your favorite salmon!
Salmon is one of my absolute favorite dishes! It’s healthy, full of flavor, light, but still filling. Jay’s dad makes the most delicious salmon you have ever had –in your entire life- and was kind enough to share his recipe with me. For many years now Jay has been making it, I make and my mom loves to make it as well. We usually buy our salmon from Costco, [except for if we occasionally spoil ourselves and get it at The Fresh Market], and it comes in HUGE portions! As you can imagine, we generally have quite a bit leftover.
As Jay and I prepare for our move into our own house, in a few months, I have become quite cautious about eating leftovers and making sure I write down every recipe I know! Just so we don’t go hungry, or broke from eating take out every night-haha. So, today I wanted to share with you this quick and easy recipe that takes your left over Salmon to the next level!
I love this recipe so much, because it takes no time to assemble and doesn’t require anything more than chopping a couple of vegetables and warming up your salmon in the microwave.
What You Will Need…
1 hamburger bun
1 Filet of Salmon
2-3 pieces of Bacon
A few pieces of lettuce
1 cup Mayonaise
Juice of 1/2 of a Lemon
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 cup Mayonnaise
- Juice of 1/2 of Lemon
- 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- Combine all ingredients and serve on Salmon BLT Burger or your favorite sandwich!
Fried your bacon in a pan or cook in oven, which ever you desire. For the bun, I like to toast mine a bit to warm it up and provide a crispier texture. I prefer to have my salmon warm, so I throw it into the microwave for a minute or two, however if you like yours cold, that works just as well. Once, you have warmed the bun and salmon, layer on a thick portion of the sauce and begin to layer on the remaining of the ingredients, in whatever order you would like. Add the top bun and you are finished! Quick and Easy!
This Salmon BLT Burger is wonderful and is such a great idea for a last minute, leftovers dinner! Salmon is by far one of my favorite dinner dishes, and this is such a great way to use your salmon for lunch or a different dinner alternative. I hope that you enjoy this recipe and find it useful in your cooking endeavors!
How do you use your leftovers to create a delicious dinner?
