Salmon Sandwiches – salmon filets are sandwiched in a roll with a delicious dill sauce.



For the Fish:

  • olive oil
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground pepper to taste

For the Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup good mayonnaise
  • 1/8 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill
  • 3/4 tablespoon chopped scallions, white and green parts
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 capers, drained

For the Sandwiches:

  • 2 deli rolls
  • spinach leaves


  1. To prepare the salmon: Preheat the broiler. Rub both sides of the salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper. Broil the fish for 5 minutes on each side, or until almost cooked through. (The fish will continue to cook after you take the salmon out.) Remove and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
  2. To prepare the sauce: Place the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, basil, dill, scallions, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until combined. Add the capers, pulse two or three times.
  3. To assemble: Slice the buns in half and toast. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the sauce on each cut side. Place some spinach on the bottom half, top with a piece of salmon. Place the top of the bun on the salmon.
