Tuesday Recipe: Grilled Salmon BLT

With farmers’ markets in full swing as we gear up for the summer season, here is a recipe inspired by fresh, delicious meat and vegetables. Our Grilled Salmon BLT sandwich is a twist on an old favorite. Featured ingredients include dill, tomatoes and salmon fillets; all even tastier when bought at your local farmers’ market. This recipe is courtesy of our Farmers’ Market Favorites Cookbook, seen below.

What You’ll Need:

1/3 c. mayonnaise

2 t. fresh dill, chopped

1 t. lemon zest

4 1-inch thick salmon fillets

1/4 t. salt, 1/8 t. pepper

8 1/2-inch slices country-style bread

4 romaine lettuce leaves

2 tomatoes, sliced

6 slices bacon, crisply cooked and halved


1. Stir together mayonnaise, dill and zest; set aside.

2. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper; place on a lightly greased hot grill, skin-side down. Cook, covered, about 10 to 12 minutes without turning, until cooked through. Slide a thin metal spatula between salmon and skin; lift salmon and transfer to plate. Discard skin.

3. Arrange bread slices on grill; cook until lightly toasted on both sides. Spread mayonnaise mixture on one side of 4 toasted bread slices.

4. Top each with one lettuce leaf, 2 tomato slices, one salmon fillet, 3 slices of cooked bacon and remaining bread slice. Makes 4.
