Ingredients

  • 1 pound hickory smoked bacon
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound skinless salmon fillet
  • 8 slices bread
  • 1 cup romaine lettuce
  • 1 small tomato sliced

Yogurt Dill Sauce:

  • ½ cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chives chopped
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Place the bacon on a foil lined sheet pan; place in a cold oven and set the temperature to 375 degrees F for about 15 to 20 minutes. Exact baking time will depend on the thickness of the bacon and how crispy you like it. When the bacon is done transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  • While the bacon is cooking make the yogurt dill sauce. Combine the yogurt, dill, chives and lemon juice in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and place in the refrigerator to chill until needed.
  • Heat the olive oil in a heavy cast iron or stainless steel pan over medium heat. Season the salmon salt and pepper to taste. Place in the preheated pan; cook until opaque, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and allow the fillets to rest before slicing into portions for the sandwiches.
  • Spread the yogurt mixture on 4 pieces of bread and top with the lettuce.
  • Add the salmon, tomato and a few slices of bacon and top with another slice of bread.

Notes

Recipe adapted from Woman's Day Kitchen
You could always cook the bacon the traditional way in a pan; working in batches, cook the bacon in a large pan over medium-low heat until crisp, 5 to 10 minutes
