Just recently I discovered Steamy Kitchen, and these delicious sandwiches caught my eye immediately. One evening when we had a couple of teenagers in the house, I whipped them up. Everyone loved them, and the kids cleaned their plates. The only suggestion they gave was that I reduce the mustard just a teeny bit, because it was a bit to strong for them. You could play around with it to suit your tastebuds!
Open faced Salmon Sandwiches with Sweet Honey Mustard Sauce
1 1/2-2 Tbsp dijon mustard (orginal says 2 Tbsp. You can judge to your tastebuds)
1 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
ground black pepper
Whisk the mustard, honey, lemon juice, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Contining to whisk, drizzle in the olive oil and whisk until incoporated. Set aside.
For the sandwich:
2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
4 (4 oz) salmon filets, skin removed
3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
2 Tbsp sweet mustard sauce
1/4 red onion, sliced thinly
8 slices dark bread ( I used sunflower sourdough and it was delicious)
Mixed leafy greens
1 avocado, halved, pitted, sliced
Using 1 Tbsp of the olive oil, brush over your bread and toast until golden. Set aside.
Heat up the rest of the olive oil in a fry pan and fry up your salmon, sprinkling with salt and pepper to season. When it’s opaque and flakes well, remove from the heat and let cool. Cut each piece into two pieces.
To assemble the sandwiches layer the greens, tomato, egg slices, avocado, red onion, and salmon. Drizzle some of the mustard sauce over top.
Yum! They are delicious.
