Four Top Reasons we Love Salmon with Dill

Grilled Salmon Sandwich with Dill Sauce

 Grilled Salmon Sandwich

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1lbs of fillet salmon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 4 slices toast
  • 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.
