Herbed Salmon Melt


This is my classic open faced sandwich with canned salmon. I like Crown Prince salmon. The medley of fresh herbs, Meyer lemon and dill pickles makes the canned salmon delectable. In this version I am going for fast and easy, so no homemade mayo.

What you will need

1 can of wild caught Pink Alaskan salmon (7.5 oz.)

1/2 Meyer lemon, 1 tsp. of the rind and all its juice

pinch of sea salt

fresh milled black pepper (1/4 tsp.)

3 tbl. fresh dill, chopped

1 tbl. of chopped scallion bulb

4 tbl. chopped dill pickle

@3 tbl. good quality mayo (to your desired consistency)

handful of mixed greens (arugula, baby spinach and cress)

4 oz. sharp cheddar, grated

4 half inch thick slices of sour dough rye bread, lightly toasted and buttered with unsalted butter on top side only

sliced tomatoes and/or avocado, optional

fresh chopped herbs for garnish
