Hubbyman goes out with the guys from work every couple of months to local breweries. He’s been raving about the Salmon BLT from his favorite hangout for awhile, but I’m not a huge fan of seafood, so I hardly cook it. Shocking, I know!
Well, we have this wonderful fresh Alaskan salmon that a friend sent us. He caught it in Alaska (of course) and then divided among friends and shipped it to us fresh! So, I knew the best thing to make would be the sandwich that hubbyman talks so much about. Only problem is that I’ve never been to this brewery nor have I had a taste of the infamous sandwich. I jumped on their site, looked up what goes on their sandwich and started planning.
Can I just tell you how happy I made my husband (and daughter) the night I made this! You’d think I just gave them a million dollars….they were over the moon in love with the sandwich. Who wouldn’t with all the cheese, bacon, salmon, and creamy pesto mayo?!?!
I think part of the fun was that I made it a built your own sammie night too! It looked so fun and the kids really got into piling all the goodies on their sandwich. It’s the best way to get kids to eat…let them help create it.
The blackened seasoning was perfect. A little spicy and tons of flavor. I did take a short cut and used premade pesto for the mayo, but if you have some leftover pesto, use it! And of course, I picked a spicy pepper jack cheese for our sandwiches, but the kids had colby jack. My mouth is watering just thinking about it…and this comes from a non-seafood fan.
