Grilled Salmon Sandwiches

A Toasty Take On Fish Sandwiches

My husband's granny used to pack him salmon sandwiches for lunch. Like tuna salad sandwiches, only with canned salmon. I know, not a great way to start a blog post, especially if you're like me and don't really find the sound of that appealing at all. But these Salmon Sandwiches are made with fresh salmon, seasoned lightly and grilled gently for a lovely smokey flavor. Then they're flaked with some light mayonnaise and placed onto bread that has been lovingly toasted. Doesn't that sound more appealing?

Grilled Salmon Sandwiches

Serves: 2       Total Time: 25 Minutes


  • 1 lb. filet of salmon, skin on preferably
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • mayonnaise to taste
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • lettuce, tomatoes, onion etc. for serving


Step 1
Oil your grids and preheat your grill to 400 to 450°F.
Step 2
Season the salmon lightly with salt and pepper, any other herbs you like too, but nothing sweet. Grill the salmon over direct heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until it flakes easily.
Step 3
Allow the salmon to cool when it is done. If you're serving it right away, spread the slices of bread with butter, and toast them like you would grilled cheese.
Step 4
Remove the skin and combine the salmon with the mayonnaise. I didn't give an exact measurement because this is something personal to everyone. Just make sure that the salmon will stay together with the amount of mayo you use.
Step 5
Place your toppings on the bread, followed by the salmon and serve. Or store the prepared salmon for use for up to 24 hours.

In the end, the husband loved this. I will definitely be making this again for his lunches, and using fresh instead of canned ingredients takes something like these Salmon Sandwiches to the next level. 

Happy Grilling.
