Grilled Salmon Sandwich with Homemade Teriyaki Sauce
This fresh recipe pairs a caramelized salmon sandwich with sweet, thick homemade teriyaki sauce
Teriyaki Sauce Recipe
Mix all but the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of water in a sauce pan and begin to cook. Mix cornstarch and cold water in a cup and stir to dissolve. Add to the sauce pan mixture.
Heat until sauce thickens. If it gets too thick, just add a little water to thin it out.
To spice it up, you may add 1 tsp of horseradish and 1 tsp of Dijon mustard (or to taste) to the sauce if you wish.
Grilled Salmon Sandwich Recipe
- 4 rolls, split and buttered
- 4 (6 oz) salmon fillets
- vegetable or olive oil to rub fillets
- arugula leaves
- 8 thick bacon slices, cooked until crisp
Rub the salmon with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the salmon over moderate heat, skinned side down, until lightly browned; approximately 3 minutes. Turn and grill for 3 minutes longer, until the salmon is almost cooked through.
Grill buttered rolls until golden brown and set aside.
Turn the salmon again and spread each fillet with at least 1 tablespoon of the teriyaki glaze. Turn and grill until glazed, about 30 seconds. Serve the remaining glaze on the side.
Place arugula on the bottom bun, and top with 2 slices of bacon. Add the salmon fillet and the top bun.
