Seared Salmon Sandwich with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Seared Salmon Sandwich with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Smokey, sweet, spicy and easy — this salmon sandwich is one of our favorites.

Simply Seared Salmon with Agave Nectar (Or Honey)

The salmon itself is brushed with a little bit of sweet agave nectar and then seasoned with salt and pepper. (You could also use honey). Then, when the salmon is seared in a hot pan, the agave nectar caramelizes a little. So good.

It only takes about 15 minutes to cook the salmon — this one is so quick.

Turn It Into a Salmon Sandwich

To work with the sweet crust of the salmon, we make a simple spicy mayonnaise. Mix cilantro, lime juice, and a little chipotle peppers  in adobo sauce with mayonnaise. Then slather it onto bread, top with a little peppery arugula and add the salmon.

Note – You can usually find canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in the international aisle of grocery stores, but can also find it in Hispanic or Asian markets.
