Ingredients 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 pound salmon, cut into 4 even pieces Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 lemon, zested 8 bacon strips ¼ cup mayonnaise 4 ciabatta rolls, halved 8 pieces butterhead or Boston lettuce 2 large tomatoes, thickly sliced
Directions 1.Preheat the oven to 350°F. Heat the olive oil in a medium-size oven-safe sauté pan over medium heat. 2.Season the salmon with salt, pepper and lemon zest. Add the salmon to the pan, skin side down, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the flesh begins to look opaque halfway up the salmon. Transfer the pan to the oven to finish cooking the salmon, 5 to 7 minutes. 3. Remove the pan from the oven, then remove the salmon from the pan and wipe off the excess oil. Place the pan on the stove over medium-high heat. Add the bacon to the pan and cook, turning occasionally, until it’s very brown and crisp, 6 to 7 minutes. 4. To build each sandwich, spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise on the bottom half of a roll, then place 2 pieces butterhead lettuce on top. Add 2 or 3 tomato slices and 2 bacon strips, and then finish with a piece of salmon and the top of the roll. Serve the sandwiches immediately.
