Light & Fit Salmon BLT


This is a recipe we got out of Paige's Cooking Light cook book, and can we just say, it's SO delicious! (Especially the sauce :) Paige's Mother-in-law gave her this cookbook, and we highly recommend it. It has so many great recipes, all healthy and low in calories!

This open-faced salmon BLT has been one of our favorites from it so far. It only has 330 calories, and has 25 grams of protein! Here's how to make it:

Prep time: 5 minutes, Cook time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:
-8 slices precooked hickory-smoked bacon
-2 (6 ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
-1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
-Cooking spray
-1/4 cup light mayonnaise
-1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
-1 1/2 teaspoons minted fresh dill
-4 (1 ounce) slices diagonally cut French bread, toasted
-4 green leaf lettuce leaves
-4 slices tomato, cut in half

1. Preheat broiler.
2. Cook bacon as desired or according to package directions (we make it on the stove).
3. While bacon cooks, sprinkle fish with 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place fish, skin sides down, on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 10 to 13 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove skin from fish, and cut fish into chunks.
4. While fish cooks, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Spread 1 tablespoon dill mayonnaise on each French bread slice; top with 1 lettuce leaf, 2 tomato halves, 2 slices bacon, and one-fourth of salmon chunks. Drizzle remaining dill mayonnaise evenly over each sandwich.


Enjoy!
