Greek Salmon Sandwiches

Back when I used to live in Florida, I worked at an awesome cafe called Yellow Dog Eats. After almost 5 years of working there, I would get the urge to make my own creations. Having a ton of different ingredients made this very easy! One of my favorites was salmon on toasted bread with hummus, feta and a tomato, onion and cucumber salad. I know it might sound really weird, but all of the flavors went very well together. And now that we have so much salmon on hand, it seemed like a great idea to make it.


Greek Salmon Sandwiches

4-6 salmon fillets, deboned
lemon juice

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place the salmon on a baking pan and pour orange juice over each fillet. Season with the salt and pepper and the blackened red fish and citrus grill seasonings.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until the salmon is flaking.
  • Once it's down, sprinkle with lemon juice and let the salmon cool. Separate the salmon from it's skin {break up the fillets a little so it evenly spreads on the bread}.

 



Tomato, Onion and Cucumber Salad

3 tomatoes, large dice
1/4 onion, large dice
1 cucumber, half slices
1/3 cup feta
pepper, to taste





  • In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well.

Condiments:

bread, toasted
hummus
feta
tomato, onion and cucumber salad {recipe above}

  • To assemble each sandwich, spread both sides of the toasted bread with hummus and lay the salmon on top. Add the tomato, onion and cucumber salad and sprinkle with feta.

*If desired, you can add extra greek dressing.
