If your family is like mine, then summer and sandwiches were meant for one another. Whether it’s a PBJ and a glass of milk on the deck for a quick lunch or a grilled cheese on a rainy day, a sandwich hits the spot. This summer if you find yourself wondering what kind of sandwich to have next, try this salmon sub.
It begins with Morey’s Garlic Cracked Pepper Atlantic Salmon. Simply place the frozen fillets in what I call “aluminum foil boats” along with all the savory marinade that they’re packaged in. Put them on the grill according to the package directions. While they grill in bubbling goodness, prepare your other simple ingredients, which include Swiss cheese, fresh spinach, sliced ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced Vidalia onion and shaved carrots. All those veggies are of course chosen for their wonderful flavor – but also for the nice mix of pleasing color that they bring to your meal event.
Now this part is important, because a great sandwich needs great bread. I recommend using soft and chewy focaccia rolls for these subs. Spread a thin layer of butter or mayo (your choice) on the open rolls and sprinkle a little garlic salt on that. For the last few minutes of the salmon bake time, put the rolls on the grill too, so that flavor melts in and the edges of the rolls get a slight “crisp” to them.
Lastly, build your sandwiches from the bottom up in this order: bottom roll, salmon, onion, spinach, carrots, tomato, cheese and top roll. If you’re a wine lover, a buttery chardonnay is a great pairing. Or for beer connoisseurs, try a hoppy pale ale alongside your submarine. Enjoy, and have a happy summer!
