Cornmeal-Crusted Salmon Sandwiches With Pepper Mayonnaise

Author: Canadian Living

Tail portions of salmon are perfect for this recipe, because they are wide and about equal thickness throughout. If using thicker centre-cut fillets, slice in half crosswise to make eight pieces and have two per sandwich. You may need a bit more cornmeal for this.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (4 oz/115 g each)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 ciabatta buns
  • 4 Bibb lettuce
  • 4 leaf lettuce
  • 1 avocado pitted, peeled and thinly sliced
Spicy Red Pepper Mayonnaise:
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Spicy Red Pepper Mayonnaise: In food processor, purée together red peppers, mayonnaise, green onions, cilantro, sriracha, lemon juice, salt and pepper until smooth.

In shallow bowl, whisk together egg, milk, salt and pepper. Pour cornmeal into separate shallow bowl. Coat salmon in egg mixture; press into cornmeal to coat evenly, shaking off any excess.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook salmon, turning once, until golden and fish flakes easily when tested, about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, halve rolls and arrange, cut side up, on baking sheet. Toast in 400°F (200°C) oven until light golden. Spread cut sides with red pepper mayonnaise. Sandwich lettuce, salmon and avocado in buns.
